Beginner Air Rifle shooters target a black circle that is about the size of a quarter. They must hit that target at a distance of 10 meter, roughly 32 feet. That “quarter” target is fired upon 10 times per position: standing, kneeling and prone. Intermediate and Senior shooters double the number of shots.
League also competes with his Compound Bow. He will be competing at the State Indoor Archery Shoot in Stillwater, January the 14th. Zachary is a 6th grader at Hooker Elementary and a member of the Guymon 4-H club.
