When we center punch the first shot, why don’t we pack our things and go home?
Targets are in. Bulls on left are 2" bulls on right are 2.5", I didn't measure the circles over the squirrel's heads. I am very impressed at the quality of these targets. Glad I bought extra. There is still time to enter if you are on the fence or in the blind, or on the tree stand....
For the entries that I have received targets will be mailed on Monday.
Hoping for less wind this weekend to finish up my entry. First shot at 50 yards was a near perfect center punch and then it went down hill.
I think I'll not be winning anything here. LOL
Just checking to make sure That I have all targets in my possession to be scored , will work on these this weekend . thanks to all that participated, was fun
I'm in, but have my own targets.

I do believe we have a match , let the fun begin.
i can send my spreadsheet from the 2019 rabbit shoot ... save a couple hours and can auto-sort according to sights and whatever you might like to add ... or multiple sorts etc.. i use it under the free OfficeLibre, also works under most Microsoft Office ... also probably under free Open Office.
would send with 2019 rabbit results so you can see what I did with it. you can then * SAVE AS * it with no data and have a fresh blank spreadsheet but with the manipulating directions left working.
if interested, I need an e-mail, cant send CBA PM here .
i am in for the shoot ... hope for at least 2 guns, i have ordered targets, my neighbor kids like to shoot at picture targets.
ps ... inflation alert ... // ... free shipping at midway was $75 this time ... never know when our Iowa opposums might attack and then i will need those 200 hornady 35 200 gr. interlocks i ordered to save $12 postage ... are they gonna kick ?
I'm new to this. Am I right in thinking that there are 8 bulls/ 8 shots taken per target? Thanks, Bill.
Midway says targets and the rest of my loot should arrive to my doorstep on Thursday. I will be surprised since it was just leaving Kansas this morning. As soon as I see them in person I can better describe the actual bulls sizing.
I would like to see someone take the reins on an iron sight only 25/50 yard match with perhaps downloadable targets (or full color)... critters only like the 'yote shoot Ken ran a few years ago. Informal matches are fun.
Mark ... for us here outliars who have our own targets ... please note here the final rules and where to send our fired targets to you and anything else I am forgetting that might apply to us here with special needs ...
my targets came in ... looks like fun ...
First targets are being mailed Wednesday 4-26.
Following note included:
Thanks for taking part in the 2023 Squirrel Postal Shoot!
A review of the rules is in order.
· Two targets per entry
· One shot per bull and each squirrel head.
· Shoot one at 50 yards
· Shoot the other at 100 yards
· Any field position
· Any sight
· Any cast bullet cartridge
· Bipods okay
· Shooting sticks are okay
· No bench.
· Mail completed targets to Fitzpatrick, address below by June 15.
· Send pm to Mark in Ellensburg with the following data so that we can put you in the database for publication
DATA Sheet info:
Powder and charge
Lube or PC
GC or PBB
Position(s) (can be different between distances)
Filler (if used)
For those providing their own targets If you pm me the above details I will reply with address to submit targets.
Woo Hoo, targets came today! Now to decide what to use to put holes in them. I'm thinking my Rem. 700 in 300 BLK with good old 311284, they actually shot better for me through a suppressor!
OK, time to show my embarrassing attempt;
Lesson learned, I need to do one of the below;
1. Get my dead ass off the bench and shoot field positions more, or...
2. Stick with shooting from the bench.
I'm going to try #1 first!
As of yesterday Fitzpatrick has only received a couple entries. If you participated please advise if you have mailed targets. If you haven't sent load and rifle data please do. This was fun yet quite humbling.
I still have a pile of targets, might have to do another shoot with a different set of rules. Stay tuned for that.
We owe a debt of thanks to Mark for taking this on!
Those are nice looking squirrels. Reminds me of the two in our backyard that my wife feeds. I have a .177 air rifle but I’d better not be seen lining it up on one of the “buddies”.
I probably will not do this match. If I did, I’d like to use my Model 74 Sharps in 40 2 1/2 with black powder but the iron sights won’t let me see the squirrel’s head distinct enough to try to hit it. It might work @ 50-yards but no way @ 100-yards.
