long range shooting match ( sportsman's challenge )
« on: February 22, 2012, 03:03:50 PM »
i am puting this out to see if there would be any intrest for a shooting match if it were set up in eastern wa.

it would be set up to be a small game and a big game target shoot with steel targets. it would be a way to test your self before the seasons began in the fall. if there was enough participation then there could be better and more in depth matchs throughout the years ahead. it would be a good way to practice for clean kills at range.

if enough intrest is shown i will deffinetly put up more specific information on here once the range and targets are aquired.

     We are currently working on putting a long range match together here in Eastern WA/ Northern Idaho. There will be animal shaped targets made of steel and some will have some plywood. The animals will most likely consist of prairie dogs, rabbits, crows, fox’s, bobcats and coyotes for the small game portion. Then the big game will consist of antelope, deer (mulie and whitetail), black bear, elk and maybe a moose. The ranges will go from 100-5 or 600 yards then 500-1000+. I think that this match should be a fun way to practice, hone or prove your skills when applying the long range practice to a hunting scenario. We all try as sportsman to make clean skills, so on the bobcats on up there will be steel swinging vitals. This will let the participant know he did make a good shot, it will also probably be worth more points in the match.

more recent info about this match

    It looks like it is going to be held by Athol, Idaho in the Panhandle National Forest. I received the application for permits today. I have been corresponding with the officials in the forest service and looks like we will be good to go once we have the event insurance taken care of and get our application in. it will take two months for processing, but everything looks good with that.

   I have been getting some positive responses from some companies that would like to help out with making this a fun match. I may post some names further down the road. I am still working on getting more. I have also been getting some people that are interested in helping with setting up running it and really just wanting to be involved along with lots of people who are interested in participating in this event.

   I have a friend who has access to a cnc plasma cutter and I dropped of some steel to him, once he gets a program In the mail he will have a bunch of shapes of animals that we can use for part of the targets. I am going to need to find some more steel. I am going to get some more of the 3/8" stuff this week and also pick up some 3/4" plywood for the larger targets we will have. I will need to try to find some decent 1/2" steel for our longer range targets where the larger more punishing calibers will be shot.

************One thing I am needing is a name for this match. Some of the stuff to keep in mind while thinking of one would be long range, hunting scenario with life sized animal targets (some with small precise areas on the target), we want to attract hunters that appreciate clean kills along with long range target shooters. The name of our website is longrangeshooter.com so think up something that sounds good. *************

******also we are going to have to start figuring out some dates to hold this match. with this we have to remember that the application takes 2 months to process so we won’t be doing anything in a month or probably even two, that puts us out at minimum may, also we won’t really be able to properly fill out the application with dates until we figure out a solid date. I would like to have a date figured out within two weeks by the latest. some time I would like to make this a bi annual event, but for the first time I would like to have a great turnout and see how everything goes before I try to plan a second match.******

If everyone interested could provide two good dates and/or a possible name for the match I would greatly appreciate it. This will get things rolling a bit better and also give us some info we will need for applications, sponsors to send things, people to plan this on their calendars.

i had a great location in idaho by athol, but the idaho department of lands said it was gonna cost a decent amount at least to me it was. so as of rite now no i dont have a for sure location, but am working on it. have a couple prospects, but can only work as fast as they answer.

i am thinking that the maximum hunting rifle weight for which ever state the match is held in should be enforced at this match, what do you guys think?

there have been some partner questions out there:

 i think what we will do is if/ when someone brings a partner they can shoot with them and all the singles that come without one will be put in for the random draw this way they will have a partner to spot and keep score for them and vise versa. there will be two people shooting at the same time with four firers on the line. there will be a team at the big game and then a team at the small game. one from each team will shoot then after they are done the others in that team will shoot. this way we dont have a lot of time used up switching people out on the line and we can keep a little order with the weapons and movements going on at the line. there will be a staff spotter per section (big, small game) that way there can be some extra eyes to aid the team spotter, they can also keep a good eye on the firers, course ect.

now you and dead eye jr. can shoot together and any other father son groups or buddies that come together can stay together and have fun. i wouldnt want to split up the father son or the two guys that always hunt together especially since i would like this to be as close to real life hunting scenario as possible.

Calib.

Do you have a company that you are working with for your insurance?  There is a great one in the Seattle area that can help if you need it.  They do a lot of work with dog clubs for weekend shooting events.  I use them also for my kennel insurance because we shoot daily here.  Send me a PM. if you would like the information.
Regards
Richard

i did get some event insurance from a place over here around spokane, well atleast the agent is. seemed like a good price. i would like to maybe look into getting year round coverage eventually, but i will wait to see how this match goes before i get to crazy about that.

thanks for the offer i will deffinetly keep you in mind if/ when any more insurance issues come up
