That would be George Digweed. He also shoots crows and wood pigeons at those distances regularly. He ALSO shoots those 100 to 110 yard targets from the hip.

🤔 hmmm…and all these years I thought shooting from the hip was a bad thing.

Now there's an event for either your shoot or the BoWhoop. Who knows, you could be crowned King George. A crown is one bling I didn't see in your bling collection. From the hip....

We used to do that! From the hip or gun upside-down or from the off shoulder. We got pretty good with all three. Somehow it seemed there was always $$ involved. Just sayin'.

BTW Daryl, I may have a crown somewhere from my days as a modern interpretive dance major at Kutztown State.

I've got one from a home economics class in the 8th grade. I beat Elsie Duffner in a cook-off for the prize using my Spam meatloaf with wild onions and skunk cabbage.

There was a nice old guy at Fairfax R&G named Willie Finch sad to say he’s not been with us in perhaps twenty years . Anyway every skeet shoot he was at after the shoot offs of the day were over he’d walk out to station 4 barefooted with his O/U with 410 tubes in it and shoot pairs from the hip . Very rarely do I remmember him missing any . RIP old friend !
