Field target shooting was imported from England. It also uses steel animal forms as targets but the ranges are random, and the targets must be hit in the "kill zone" that is brightly marked. Discs can be as small as one-half inch in diameter and range varies from 10 to 50 yards. Any shooting position is legal. The key to success is accurate range estimation.
The American Air gun Field Target Association (P.O. BOX 218, Hernando, MS 38632) is the governing body for field target competition and tournaments.
