    Default WPHFTA 11/2017 LEAGUE and 100m shoots Faraway Fields Farm ON 23/24th September 2017

    So after a fair bit of planning and consultation the “away shoot” is finally happening.
    Trevor at Faraway Farm has kindly offered to host an away shoot on his farm in Bo-Piketberg. It features an already set up HFT course and 100m / sight in range.

    When
    : Weekend of 23and 24 September 2017
    Where: Faraway Fields Farm, Bo-Piketberg (see map below)
    Who: Everyone is welcome to shoot, either for the weekend or as a “day visitor”
    What to bring: Your air rifle gear, food and anything else you may require to have an enjoyable weekend. It will most likely be warm, and there may be insects around, so sunscreen and anti-bug juice is a must. The terrain is rugged, ie sharp and uncomfortable in places- bring a mat!
    Why: This is an opportunity to enjoy the company of your shooting buddies and shoot a rugged and very challenging HFT course.

    HFT Shoot
    The idea is to present a bit of a challenge whilst having some fun competing in a real world hunting scenario. Your shooting position for the most part is determined by the terrain, with a few exceptions.
    In brief then here are the nuts and bolts of the shoot:
    An HFT course in some really stunning terrain, elevated and depressed shots included

    • Shooting positions will vary from prone, supported and unsupported kneeling / standing and off peg
    • The normal rules for HFT in terms of rifle power, hamsters and butt hooks etc will apply.


    100m shoot:

    • 5 Shot grouping
    • 5 shot highest score
    • Large gong shoot – best out of 5 shots
    • Small gong shoot – best out of 5 shots
    • And a few more
    • Please remember to bring shade as we are in open field.


    Weekend Program

    Hi Guys

    So we are up to 3 people going to this event.

    I hope the name of the farm "FAR AWAY Fields" is not the problem , it is only about 1.5 hours drive.

    The owner of the course have spend a lot of energy to build and maintain this course, and is really something great to shoot. There is over 50 permanent targets. (Only 30 will be used on the HFT course)

    We are working on some prizes for this event. More to come soon.
