Port Colborne Rifle Field Target -
Another Elmer Fudd,is in the books. Big shout out to the Port Colborne & District Conservation Club for letting us use their wonderful facilities.
The day dawned cool, 4C, and misty with a clear sky and bright sunshine. Or, in other words the start to a perfect day to be out on a FT course. By 10:00 AM we had one our biggest turn outs for the Fudd ready and raring to go – 15 PCP shooter and 13 Springers!
For those that are not familiar with the Fudd, it is our end of season gathering and is meant more as a fun shot than serious competition. It is where we bring out the rigs that have sat in the closet or are kept for special shoots just like the Fudd. All the kill zones are full size (thought this year, 1” crept in for some closer ones and the positionals) and Canadian Hunter rules are used. It makes for a pile of fun with a big chili feast at the end.
The course was spectacular – the Fall colours were just settling in, the odd acorn fell from the oak trees, the wind stayed home and dappled sunlight light the forest. The lighting did make for some challenges as the targets blending into the background and the shadows made finding some of them a trick. The woodland course was 17 lanes with two targets each and each target was shot twice. This meant a 68-shot course with a total of 136 points on offer!
Having said this was a fun shoot, things were very competitive. We had three shoots offs!
