  1. Just a head up our January 2019 Social night is on Thursday 17th at Engadine Bowling Club
  2. The weather was perfect for the butchering we had 34 members turn out for the day and I think everyone who attended had a good time a learnt a thing or two. Thanks to Shirehunters Member Scott and Kim from Bush Gear who got us the 2 Rusa deer to Butcher, also Brian "Chook" and the guys from Sutherland Small Bore Rifle Rang for letting us use your club grounds for the day. Also huge wrap to Cameron "Camo" for his knife work on the deer and talking and explaining the butchering on how to field butcher on the ground and from a hanging deer to all the guys that had never seen it done before. He also played with some of the knife kit that is supplied by Bush Gear and is a good set for someone starting out https://bushgear.com.au/sharp-knife-set-in-pvc-tube/ highlights from the butchering day

  5. Shirehunters recently held another 22 target shooting Day at SSSBRC range at Yarrawarrah followed by a BBQ. It was a great morning with all benches and prone shooting slots filled. Some members had never shot prone before and took advantage of the SSSBRC target rifles with Chook and others giving pointers and lessons to those new to the discipline. The top three shooters on the days were Steve in 3rd position with a combined score for both prone and bench shoots of 361.3, Joseph in 2nd with 372.7 and the winner was Drew with an excellent score or 391.15 out of a possible 400.20 Drew also took out both the individual bench and prone shoots.

  13. The inaugural Shire Hunters Small Bore Rifle competition was held today in near perfect conditions with a clear sky and very little breeze to contend with for those trying this type of competition shooting for the first time. 12 shooters competed whilst Gunner assisted the 3 junior shooters who attended and took care of the BBQ whilst I looked after running the comp and range officer duties. The day started with a brief history of the club, an insight into the gear used and the safety aspects of the sport. The range was divided up to allow 8 shooters to shoot from the bench position whilst the remaining 8 were prone. Getting underway just after 9 the first shooting detail allowed shooters to sight their rifles in with the sub sonic ammunition required to be used at the range. The sighting in shoot progressed well and after a few adjustments to various scopes most were pretty well zeroed to allow the competition to commence. Over the next few hours shooters alternated between the prone and bench positions with the combined score from each position tallied up to find the top 3 positions. Some shooters took advantage of the conditions and completed a 4th non competition shoot whilst Gunner fired up the BBQ and got lunch going for all to enjoy. Thanks to all members who attended today, Gunner for helping organise the day and for manning the BBQ and providing the food and refreshments and for Shire Hunters for subsidising the price of the ammunition. The top three shooters on the days were Peter in 3rd position with a combined score for both prone and bench shoots of 357.8, Steve in 2nd with 367.6 and the winner was Matt with an excellent score or 385.8.
