Each year, starting in late April, Stowe Achers hosts a 10-Week Field / Hunter Outdoor League. We utilize our NFAA / PSAA Field Units and shoot 14 targets per week – alternating between Field and Hunter Faces.
The purpose of this league is to generate a little friendly competition amongst shooters. With that said, we are happy to accommodate those with physical limitations. In the event that someone is unable to walk our rugged course (Targets 15-28), they may shoot all of thier scores on our course with easier walking (Targets 1-14).
Additionally, Youth may shoot from shorter distances as per NFAA Rules.
The 2017 Field / Hunter League will begin on April 24th
