NEFTA Hunter 2011 Round 1 10th April

The 2011 NEFTA Hunter series starts this Sunday (10th April) at Pontefract Air Rifle Club.

The NEFTA Hunter Series is an excellent, relaxed introduction to the world of competitive Hunter Field Target shooting (HFT).

The rules are very similar to the UKAHFT rules – basically, you have a peg and a target. Some part of your gun or body must be in contact with the peg when you take your shot. If you knock the target over you get 2 points, if you hit the metal plate but fail to knock the target over you get 1 point – if you miss you get zero.

There are 30 targets on the course with killzone’s ranging in size from 15mm to 45mm, placed at distances between 8 yards and 45 yards.

The atmosphere is relaxed, it’s not a heated competition but as with all NEFTA competitions, safety is always paramount.

Shooting should start at around 9am – with the 2nd session starting at around 11:30am, but may start earlier or later depending on how long it takes to re-spray targets etc. after the first session have shot.

If you’ve never tried HFT before and you fancy giving it a go, then these events are perfect for you.

Anston FTC won the team title for the 2010 series, I’m sure we’ll do well again this season, but we need your support.

Wednesday evening shoots

Now that the clocks have changed and the nights are drawing out, We are going to start the Wednesday night league from Wednesday 30 March.
This is a members and guest of members shoot not an open event.

We normally set out 15 targets for a short HFT style course and you can shoot it anyway you like as many times as you like.

Shooting normally starts at between 4pm and 5pm and ends when it gets too dark to safely shoot any more. (Which at the moment is about 7:30pm but this will get later as the nights get lighter).

If you can get there early then we’d appreciate your help setting the course out, or if you can stay to help put it away again that would really help too.
