Stage 1 “Field Target”, Each spot you shoot from is called a lane.  There will be two targets per lane and each target is to be shot twice.  There will be 20 targets for record in the 10 total lanes.  Knocking the target down is worth 1 point and hitting the target is worth zero point.

Shooters must stay behind the stake and be able to touch it with their foot.  Shooters will re-set the field target by pulling on the attached string.  No sighting shots are allowed on this stage.  Range finders are not allowed but you may use the parallax adjustment on your scope to help judge distances.  Support bags and or bipod/tripods are allowed for this stage and can be carried in a bucket which the shooter may sit on while shooting.  Each shooter will get 8 minutes to set up and shoot their 4 shots at each lane.  A whistle will be blown when your time is up.  Distances will be from 10 yards to 50 yards.

There will be a few required unsupported standing/seated shots in this match.  Other than the required positional shots, a competitor always will have the option of shooting prone or off their bucket.
