Now, what's it like shooting from a real anthill? That would make it even more interesting!

The shoot at Bloemhof was as usual well organised and challenging. My day did not start of to good with a minus 25 on the first target. I got the distance wrong and shot for headshots at 210m. Real distance 260m. It was lying down, impala. I shot a nice grouping but all in the mouth, minus points!!
The rest went OK, the usual gongs, standing, kneeling etc. The other one that caught me was also 260 m at a springbuck, lying on hard ground, no rests allowed. With shooting against the clock there is no time for finding natural point of aim etc. One have to get down, aim and shoot. About 15 secs per shot.
They stretched the gongs going out to 400yds at an 8 inch gong, with only a tree for support.
 
So I enjoyed it, but the competition is tough, no room for errors. I am not sure yet of my overall position, as I had to leave before all the scores were in. I'm guessing around the 25th or so out of 80 shooters from what I saw coming in.
 
I did not take many pics, it was very hot and just to much to shoot and do pics.
 
Sighting in range standing range (3shots at pig, 2 at blesbuck (50 m and 75 m ) and welcoming tent.
