About Field Target (FT):
Field targets are constructed from heavy-gauge-steel, cut out to represent silhouettes of typical small hunting game or varmint. The object of the sport is to estimate the distance to the target, and compensate for pellet trajectory to knock the target down.
Targets are placed in the field anywhere between 10 to 55 yards from a shooting station, simulating typical airgun hunting scenarios. The targets have a circular hole in the faceplate (kill-zone) that may very from 3/8 to about 2" in diameter. There is a paddle behind the kill-zone, so that when the paddle is hit by a pellet the target falls.
