TRAP & SKEET

     

AIRGUN

FIELD TARGET

 

Whether you are a beginner, a hunter or a seasoned clay buster, join us for Trap or Skeet.

We will have “meat shoots” shoots once a month and they are indicated on the schedule. We will try and handicap the rounds during the “meat shoots” based on shooter skill.

Note the club will be offering 2 free rounds of trap or skeet a month to youth shooters (17 and under) when accompanied by a club member. Shooters to provide own shells. Note that parent or guardian must sign a waiver for youth shooter (waivers only need to be signed once a year)  

Non-members welcome

Airgun Field Target is a hunting simulation sport featuring the use of airguns.  The sport has existed in Canada since 1994 and there is an international governing body called the World Field Target Federation (WFTF).  The Canadian governing body is the Canadian Airgin Field Target Association (CAFTA) (http://cafta.ftcentral.ca/blog1.php); one of 27 member countries in the world.

Targets can be placed from 10 to 55 yards and feature hit zones if varying sizes; from a quarter of an inch in diameter up to one and one half inches.  Target faces, which are usually in the shape of game animals, are metal and the hit zone is a hole in the target face.  A pellet passing through the hit zone will trip a mechnaism which causes the target to fall back.  A long string to the firing line is then used to reset the target. 

We have classes to accomodate casual shooters, right up to serious competitors.  The age of competitors has ranged from 8 years old up to those well into their 80's.  Field Target is a social event, shot in small squads of two or three competitors.

Come out and give it a try!
