    I was told you must shoot the stright away fist, from station 1 the right bird
    station 5 the left. True or false? Can't find anything in the ATA rule book.
    Thanks Butch H

    False, You can shoot whatever target you want to shoot first but can only shoot at it once.

    Butch, it's just a general recomendation because the straightaway is usually the easiest target to quickly shoot first....

    Usually, not always, shooters shoot the target that is a straight away first. There are not rules about this. I have been trying to figure out which target is closest to a straight away form post three.

    Shoot the first target first, and the second...well, second. If you shoot the first target twice, or the second target twice, you are in deep crap with the scorekeeper. You may however shoot the first target second and the second target first. Many shooter use this unorthodox approach, some with great success.
