At the IBC there was talk of some KD close to the IBC site. Is this a definitely going to happen?

I'm going to say "no" to anything like an official KD event. FreddomV and I went and looked it over last week. We're not sure how it'll all work out yet. The fields were extremely muddy and we hoped they would dry up some, but with all the rain we had, and now snow on the ground, it doesn't look good. If we do anything it'll be a very informal afternoon of shooting by a few locals to see how this spot will work and what we can get as far as yardage and safe backstops. The downside to this place is it's a working farm and even if it proves to be successful, shooting can only be done before crops are in and after the corn is picked in the fall.

Still looking for someone with about 80 acres in a deadend valley.  :)

Just wondering...I thought the mud would be a factor. That plus the working farm issue. Oh well...just checking.

Thanks Mike

My husband is interested in shooting some KD with his .308 (once he makes rifleman). Are you going to do it again sometime?

Five Riflemen had a good time and I relearned some lessons:
1. if at all possible- set up range/ targets the evening/day before. - Always takes more time than you think it will.
2. only all wheel drive and "4wheelers" in the field. Others will find the soft spots and get stuck.
3. windage on the ridge at 3 & 400 yards will take more/better calculation for consistency.
4. Springtime- new batteries in hearing protection.
We will have another KD practice in the fall- October when the corn is out.
"MN State Appleseed" hopes to have 2-3 official KD Shoots a year starting 2012/ ASAP.   All of us need to be looking for possible full distance ranges.  LaCrosse WI has a great range that we are hoping to be invited to- we may be able to help put together a TriState KD shoot there. -- But we need more locations.
