Thread: Pacing Targets At ASA Pro Am

    Pacing Targets At ASA Pro Am

    A fellow I shoot with shot the team shoot at an ASA pro am. The pro he shot with assured him that it was not against the rules to step off the distance from the stake to the target or from the target to the stake after you had shot that target. I always thought there was language in the rules that prohibited that practice. But I cannot find that in the rules. Can anyone clear this up for me?

    Yes it is against the rules. Not sure how you can enforce it and read someone mind. I pretty well know what the distance is after my shot. It is in the rules.

    I don't shoot ASA as they are nowhere near here but interested to know why you can't pace off after everyone has shot? No one can gain advantage as the target is done so why would it be against the rules?

    at asa you can view the next target from the target you've just shot. ibo doesn't make viewing the next target very easy. at least that's what i think.
    Can you point me toward the target, please?

    you are correct, you can view the next target 99% of the time, and even tho the next group is not suppose to move over the the stake until you are gone, they can still watch you walk back and count your steps along with you, and their are some wise ole goats out there that use every trik in the book, and are very very quiet about it, some shoot well others don't so what to do.... but you are not suppose to step off the targets at ASA events..

    Quick fix,hold ASA shoots at places that are big enough that they can spread them out to not be visible from each other.

    I guess I'm just too simple minded to step off a target (accurately) then go to the next target and calculate the difference.. I'll just have to keep taking My chances "Guessing" them one at a time..lol

    Sounds simple to say that. Making everone skip a target in ranges would stop this.

    When walking back to the target just say random numbers out loud to mess him up. 92, 84, 48, 76, 1023! That will mess him up everytime!!

    Someone walks back from the stake, how do you enforce a rule of no stepping them off unless they are counting outloud. It is easy enough to shoot the target and look at the next one and say that it is 4 yards further or 8 yards shorter. They do get some high scores at ASA shoots don't they. Wait a minute, I shoot K45 they write down the yardage for me.
