Field Target started in this country in the mid 80's

Response to Do you remember when?

Back then EVERYONE shot about the same, and it was alot closer to Hunter style than open style, at least out West. So far as I know we were having a few matches which we CALLED Hunter in the 90's, but few wanted it, cause it was .22 cal and used (really) low power scopes.

Nowadays, I think the true Hunter class as we know it is where we can shoot from a stool or bucket and use a bipod or monopod.

That Forum was great, and worked pretty well without any moderation at all. Some folks hated seein some a the stuff they wrote while in a state responded to with nobody steppin in to "hold their hand", but it was just fine the way it was, and seemed to work itself out over time.

There was a lot less really silly stuff bein said there than I see here nowadays, even if alot of it disappears right away due to the mother-henning "needed". I tried to get folks interested in Hunter shooting again at CASA during 2003 by shooting much of the season like that.

SO, do you have any match results showing or listing Hunter class shooters in your club from the 80's?
