Course of fire will be 40 shots, 10 shots at each bank of silhouettes. Chickens at 40 yds, Pigs at 50 yds, Turkeys at 75 yds, and Rams at 100 yds. Targets must be struck in left to right order and the silhouette must fall over to be counted as a hit. Silhouettes knocked over out of order will be counted as misses.
