Do you call lost target if there is no chip?

    What if your shooting with the guys from Kentucky or the Middle East, which I was one time. And they always called a chip when there was none? And the puller says nothing. Do you say anything or let it go?

    A prime reason for the average shooter to never shoot for money.

    If I am on a pick up squad and we are not shooting for diamond stickpins, I will let it go for one post just to see if I am shooting with sportsmen or cheaters. If folks won't confess their misses when we change, the next wrong call, I will say something to the scorer and if necessary to the squad.

    A cloud of dust is a lot of very small chips. HMB

    Good observation HMB. I have hit targets hard and they were called lost (in accordance with the rules). Back when clubs were throwing Remington targets, I have picked up whole targets that had 5-6 holes in them and I bet they were called lost. By the same rules, I have chipped the tiniest piece off a bird and the scorer marks it dead. I have seen and experienced birds hit and change course 45 degrees called lost. The real solution is to "smoke em", no doubts, no cheating, just good shooting.
