The Houtkapper branch (Secunda) of SA Hunters hosted a 150m 6 shot grouping competition at the Koos Kruger Shooting range. The competition took place on Saturday 10 February.
Although the weather was showing signs of rain, hunters and enthusiasts came from as far as Phalaborwa, Marble Hall, Pretoria, Frankfort, East Rand and Southern Mpumalanga.
A total of 126 marksmen entered the competition with some competitors shooting two or three times. Danie Koch from the Springbok branch (Kemptonpark) and Peet Grobler from Pretoria East each shot 8 rounds! A total of 870 shots were fired at 290 targets.
The day was enjoyed by all and there was an air of excitement between all the participants. The competition was shot in one relay consisting of two groupings of three shots each in a time of three minutes. Rohan Wiese from Slingervel was the overall winner with a rifle that he built himself for his 21st birthday. Rohan represented the Houtkapper branch. He shot two groupings of 7,57mm and 12,45mm with a total of 20.02mm. The groupings are measured from centre to centre of the two furthest shots. Steven Dyke from the Springbok branch (Kemptonpark) was 2nd with 24,13mm en Cobus Mouton from Houtkapper branch was 3rd with 25.34mm.
Linda Adendorff (Bethal branch) was the best female shooter with 29,72mm and Sandra de Jager of the Wilgerivier branch (Frankfort) 2nd with 36,11mm.
The best junior of the day was Armand Mahne from Houtkapper with a 64,27mm score.
There was also a clay target competition that was won by Pieter Hatting and Pieter Langenhoven took second place, both from Houtkapper branch.
A number of prizes were up for grabs ranging from bird hunts to magazine subscriptions, from Blesbuck to cash prizes. A raffle for a handmade knife went to Daniel Coetzee from Secunda.
“The day was a great success and 44 prizes were dished out by lucky draw” says Mark Kruger, acting Chairman of the Houtkapper branch, “Without sponsors, competitors and dedicated range officers as well as other branch members that offer their selfless dedication, time and help, such events cannot take place.”
