Somewhere close to the middle of June each year, we have a number of shooters from all around the United States, and one crazy Canadian, that comes to play on steel and shoot prairie dogs with handguns of all kinds.
Some, just come to shoot prairie dogs. They use rimfires, in single shot, revolver, and semi automatics. Others use centerfire cartridges, both straight wall and bottleneck. All kinds of action types, some use iron sights, other use dot sights, and most use some kind of scope (both handgun and rifle scopes).
Some shoot the prairie dogs off of the bench, while other shoot prone, and others use different kind of field rests. Some folks go for lots of kills, while others are going for personal records at longer distances.
Then comes those who also want to shoot steel from about 100 yards to beyond 1000 yards. The majority of targets are 5 inch and 10 inch, but as we go further out, we do have some larger targets as well. The steel shoot, is under time with 5 to 8 targets per stage. There are no benches to shoot off of. This is a field shooting match. Some shots are from kneeling or sitting, while other shots from the prone position.
I guess I get more excited about watching our junior shooters compete, and the new guys/gals who are learning to shoot distance for the first time.
We have some folks who only shoot prairie dogs the whole three days, while there are others who only want to shoot the steel match. The majority, however, does a little bit of both.
If this sounds intriguing or fun to you, give me a holler
June 18-20.

Back to 5 stages this year.
We tried 6 stages last year, but it ended up taking too much time.
Targets are up.

We have 43 targets for the Short Course.
22 of those targets are under 300 yards.
Shortest distance is 80 yards.
Furthest distance is 587 yards (20" target)
There are 5 targets between 400-500 yards and one target between 500-600 yards

We will have target hit indicator lights for this year, on some of the further targets
