Only way I can hit stuff is with a bipod and sandbags...
I used to teach people to shoot.

now it’s just more of a hobby to teach a class.

That's pretty cool stuff! Growing up hunting or just shooting, I never relied on being good enough standing shooting. Unless it was really close, I'd always use a prop of some sort, tree or whatever was handy... Or else I'd just shoot prone. Haven't even tried shooting standing for years now.

For me, its all about putting the bullet through the same hole in paper, as far as I can, using bi pods and bags... And getting repeatable ammo.

Army sent me to the squad designated marksmanship instructors course. It was a ball.

Basically the sniper range course without the fieldwork and ghillie suit work. We shot iron sights all the way to 1000 meters with the M14

I’ve shot several NRA high power matches as well as cmp service rifle. Those are 200 M standing slow fire. 20 minutes for 20 shots and 2 sighters.
Easier to just link to it.


I’ve also shot the MN long range match in Harris MN which is 1000 yards with my M1 Garand and M14 semi auto match gun.


My lifetime goal had been to get my distinguished shooting badge. I’ll hopefully get to now.

Pics probably won't be in order but we have had this buck come in since 2016. he would probably have been 3 and 1/2 in 2016 so now that puts him at 7 1/2 or 8 and 1/2 years old. Truly the buck of a lifetime. We don't know where it goes once he loses his velvet we don't see him again. We took a couple of the mature dominant bucks out of the area last year the hope is he will take their place and we will have a chance at him. The split in his ear gives him away. 125740.jpeg 125742.jpeg 125743.jpeg 125745.jpeg

Okay dumb question.Could that split ear be from a ripped out tag and he got away from a deer farm?
