Format Summary

Since Mother Nature will not allow any sighter shots during hunting, neither will the Match Director for this match. The Shooter must come to this event knowing how to adjust their sights for several different distances. The targets themselves are rodent sized to add to the reality of the event. 

For the Season

  1. This is a 20 minute, 20 shot, match shot at approximately 100 yards, 165 Yards, 200 yards, and 220 yards. Use of a range finder to verify ranges is permitted.
  2. There will be five shots at each range for score, with a maximum possible score of 200. Sighters are not permitted, but two fouling shots off the target will be permitted during a three-minute preparation period. All hits on either the target or target support will be counted, with extra shots being deducted at the highest hit value.
  3. Any gun and any sight may be used from any safe position. (No .50 BMG’s) 
  4. The targets will be varmint sized figures with scoring rings, and may vary from match to match at the discretion of the Match Director. The target type will be posted near the firing line to allow each competitor the opportunity to note size, shape, and location of the scoring rings.
  5. Slings, gloves, and shooting jackets or other vest/sling combination equipment (tactical jackets) are permitted. Bi-pods, crossed shooting sticks, and sandbags are permitted for front rests only. Rear or gun butt rests are not permitted.

Special Notes on Scoring Varmint Matches

  1. There will be a maximum of 200 points per match, with a maximum of 50 points per target.
  2. The targets will be scored with ten points for the center bulls-eye, and 5 points for the second ring. Shots outside the second ring, but still within the target body will be scored as one point.
  3. As a special extra point make-up opportunity, the varmint target eye will be scored as twenty points, but the maximum score per target will still be limited to 50 points. To be counted, the pupil of the eye must be touched by the shot.
