Hunter Field Target Shooting with Team Air Arms
Thursday, 30 May 2019 | Air Arms
Today on Air Arms TV, we’re at the misfits shooting club for the first round of the UKAHFT National Series. We follow the Air Arms HFT team as they take part in the competition and discuss what the sport means to them.
Hunter Field Target shooting requires competitors to shoot at a number of targets set at several distances with varying kill zones. The vast majority of the target are shot from a prone position, but also they take shots kneeling and standing. Unlike field target, HFT doesn’t allow sitting shots and butt-hooks.
Within HFT there are many shooting classes for all experience levels. The main shooting class is the Open, this is where the vast majority of shooters compete. The other classes include recoiling, ladies, .22, junior and finally veterans.
Throughout the year there are a number of hunter field target competitions. The UKAHFT National Series takes place across the country from April – October. The World Hunter Field Target Championship is another big two-day event. The Air Arms RSN10 and International are also two very popular competitions.
