Default Traditional First Shot Challenge Week 25 2022

Happy Fathers Day Shooters.

Were going 3D snake killing.
Take an empty toilet paper roll or paper towel roll (cut down to TP roll size ~4”) and draw a snake on one side and make a dot for an aim point.
Use two toothpicks or tape or staples or whatever to secure your TP Snake to your target.
We’ll forego shooting directly at a grounded TP snake…whereas have your TP snake mounted no higher than 6” off the ground.
Shoot up to 5 days. First shot of the day.
Shoot from 13 yards for adults and 6 yards for kiddos.
Measure all shots edge of shaft to center of aim point.
First person to solidly strike the snake immediately wins target….a leaner doesnt count but for measure.
If no direct strikes…Winner is lowest single days measure.
Good skilling.
God bless!
Have a great week Yall.

Thanks TT.
Funny guy Gary.
Itd have to be phallic. Maybe next years target… Dong a donkey…3D. Save up your carpet roll tubes.

If youre referring to current target…just like Rebs. Essentially the whole tube is the 3D snake. I drew a head on mine.

^^^^^^^^^^^^Thanks, Briar. If you don' t mind, I'd like to call an audible on the challenge. Closest edge of shaft to aim point, only shots on snake count. If doable, everyone keep shooting.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Lets get the whole 12’ snake 3D paper roll out next year for Dong the Donkey Daddy…seems more cordial than a 4” chub head. Its how its used that matters
