I found a new fun reactive target.

Flies!

The last time I was out shooting with a 77/22 and my Suhl, flies kept landing on the paper. It was a bit tricky since they kept walking around. At 50 yards, a flies body is about the size of a .22 round, so it is a challenging shot. Not much left when you hit one.

When I hit the first one, I thought it was a lucky shot. Then I tried again, got that one too. At that point, all practice ended and it was game on. Doesn't make your target hole pattern make any sense, but you can tell when you get one.

Next year when it gets hot again, I am going to take some bologna with me.

The real challenge is to wait until they crawl into the 10 ring during a match. Real pressure to count a coup.

next time take a little jelly and smear it a little on there, you'll
probably run out of ammo.

I was shooting my Daystate CRX BR air rifle at 50 yds when a fly landed on the target. The wind was really switchy that day so I looked at the flags and gave it my best guess. Barely missed but the fly didn't move. The wind had shifted again so I changed the hold and hit the exact same hole !!!!!!

Then the stupid fly walked over and looked in the hole ! I KNOW I CAH HIT THAT HOLE !! Third try was right down the same hole so the result was bug guts on the target

Fly?

I have had wild hogs and turkeys walk past the top of the berm.. Not taking that shot was difficult.
