A lot of shooters say spot shoots are not a real competition they say it is just getting off a lucky shot. It is also known as, turkey shoot, board shoot, beef shoot, ect...
I think it is a competition, not like any Tactical Rifle Match or a .22cal Bench Rest Rifle Match is a competition. But it is a competition where you try to get as much shot to hit the target as you can this will raise chance of getting at least one piece of shot to land right in the middle of your razor blade + cut into the board. I compete in these locally, they are a lot of fun & it is a good fund raiser for the church org. I think that shotguns are good for something else other than clay shooting. Picture this, being able to hit center of a razor blade + cut in a board from 50 yards away. It wouldn't be that hard with a .22cal Bench Rest Rifle or a .223 Tactical Rifle but you are shooting a stock shotgun fitted with a turkey choke using Winchester AA heavy 7 1/2 shot.
That is not so easy even it you can shoot 10 rounds at the target.
Here is my 2nd place board from the last shoot, remember this is a 6"x 6" target, at 50yds it looks like a dot. The 2nd place winning shot is in the red circle it isn't dead center that's why it is 2nd, the green box is a winner take all side bet I didn't win that one.
It is a lot of fun & I keep my freezer full of meat by doing this kind of shooting, this win put $150 of meat in my freezer.
So let me know if you think this is a real competition or not?
