Harrisburg Hunters and Anglers woodswalk starting

Just for info, Harrisburg Hunters and Anglers Sportsmens club starts their woodswalk shoots this Sunday. Open to the public. Runs every Sunday 1/13/19 - 3/31/19 8:00am 02:30pm. Good time for newbies to experienced. Good group. I recommend it for newer people as these people are very willing to help you learn. Good chance to practice and keep the smokepoles active

TPlank, I really don't know. But I have never seen anyone shoot anything but PRB in their flints and caplocks. Not sure if some of the targets could handle Maxi's and such. I will ask this weekend

Verified today, roundball only. And I shot like crap today, but think I figured out why. Next week should be back to my normal

I really wanted to come today and my week caught up with me and I just couldn't get out of the house today....slept later than intended so I could catch up on sleep, then got waylaid with a bunch of household stuff I needed to do. Ugh.

Not sure about next weekend, but the one after, I should be good to go. Deer season will be over by then, too, so that'll make it a little easier to carve out some time.

Nice day for the woodswalk shoot. Did ok today, went 8/10 on both the relays I shot. Second one should have been 10/10 but I screwed up 2 shots. No excuse for the two misses on 1st relay. Just missed two tough shots is all.


Come on out. Good way to keep the charcoal burners active and stay in practice since the seasons are over and have some fun

Is that the same as a quail walk?

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

10 steel targets of varying shapes and sizes and various ranges. Patched round ball. Rifle, smoothbore and some guys shoot pistol (cap and ball revolver or flint/caplock). Walk a trail to the 10 shooting stations. dunno if that sounds like a quail walk.

My question was answered when the conversation turned to muzzleloaders. Quail walks are with shotguns and clay birds. Thansk.
