I practice throughout the year, tinkering around with all of my guns is fun. Plus it prepares you for the season.

Re: Practice during off season

About the only time I don't shoot is during the first few months of the year, mainly due to the weather.

I try to get out once a month once the winter weather breaks, then as the season approaches once a week.

The more practice the better, its best to know your
rifle like the back of your hand, and this is the best
way.

Re: Practice during off season

You can call it pratice if you want,but I love to go shoot my guns.Shooting relaxes me.Taking something so powerfull and unleashing it is a great stress reliever.I also love testing my reloads.Reloading lets me shoot more.So yes I guess I do practice.I actually shoot enough that I use lighter caliber firearms so I can stay longer.22 mag,17hmr,22lr,22-250 and 243.My 30-06 can't be shot by me anyhow that many shots.Between me,my son and his bud I would say at least 300 rounds are fired in a practice session.Most are rimfire though by the boys.They both have AR style 22lr's so the lead flies.They have fun though and sometimes I take the 22-250 and print a hole in the bulls eye of their target when they are not looking.It's funny you should try it.

Pretty much year round, I shoot paper during the winter then spring into fall it's ground hogs makes for good practice.

Year 'round when schedules permit.

We have our own family range on my brother's farm (5 minutes from the house). There's a nice bench and 100, 200, 300 and 600 yard targets.
