    A huge thanks to all at York for a great start to the Hunter series. Weather was better than expected and some interesting shots on the course.

    Well done folks, roll on the next one :):)

    Well done York for the course today. Its a good job the wind didn't get too wild or it would have been very tricky.

    That mini kill on peg 22 up the tree was well peppered up on my last shot, and I only just realised that it was a kill inside a kill at the last minute. Sneaky!!

    Too many Bluebells though getting in the way though which meant a lot of shots had to be taken on the elbows! Can you please cut them all down next year.:rolleyes:
    Thanks to Julie my shooting buddy for the company as well.

    Prone shooting

    Shame about the blue bell Dean but if you got off your belly and shot like a proper hunter you'd take the shots kneeling and then you would have had no trouble at all !

    Ha Ha Ha

    my only moan would be the targets on the pistol course and sillys course were the wrong shade of yellow for there back drop very hard to make them out thanks to Jamie for the company on the course nice to see some new blood taken part and excellent to see the gasman make a return

    A big well done to the guys at york. Was a great course.
    Shame about the target sticking that was at end of the tube, never had to call a target till now.
    Thanks to thomas for the company on the course plus for letting me have a go with his pistol.
    Roll in the next round.

    york,

    Great shoot on what looked like been a very wet day but turned out to be a cracker.
    Thanks to Paul for the company (never known him to be so quiet ) !!!!!

    Think someone should come up with an ideal for the pistol targets I could only make out about 3 of them and shooting at a yellow blob that you can only find by pulling the string is not ideal.
    Sighting them with a tree behind them would be better !

    Looks like I will have to change from a red dot to a scope with so magnification to help my old eyes !!!

    Very well done to York for a inovative shoot. I would just like to echo Dean though and just ask that clubs make sure in the future rounds that the grass/sticks/leaves/bluebells at al are cleared from the firing line.:)
