    Hi all-
    I just want some thoughts on how your club might shoot a follow the leader game shoot........We shot one of these this summer, and we were all over the trapfield, next trap field over, back at the porch, etc. and we didn't let everyone pick a spot. Only the "squad" leader chose. I suppose we could have let everyone have a turn picking a spot to shoot from, but didn't think of it at the time. In this game, the lead-off shooter picks a spot, shoots, and shoots til he breaks the target. Then the next guy stands in that spot, and so on. Last man with a shell wins. We each put in 3.00 and only kept track of targets and paid the club for that cost. We got down to possibly having a tie between two shooters, though. The last spot chosen to shoot from-neither one could hit it. If they both spend all their last shells on this spot, who wins? Should it become a sudden death when it gets down to 2 shooters?....Just curious how some of you might resolve this-(to avoid an embarrasing situation :).........
    Thanks! It was alot of fun! Hard screaming targets, long distance, etc.

    How do YOU shoot

    We usually shoot our follow the leaders as "two and outs". That is, the leader goes where he wants and shoots 1 shot, then everyone else shoots from the same spot. Rinse and repeat. If you miss two targets, you are out. If the leader misses 2 targets he is out and the next man in line takes over as leader. We usually shoot till there are only two, maybe three, shooters left and then split the pot.

    And yes, we end up everywhere from 45+ yards back, to posts on the next trap over, to in front of the trap with the targets passing over your head.

    Hi

    Follow-the-leader

    Entry $5.00 split $2.00 club and $3.00 pot each shooter. Between 5
    and 10 shooters per event seems to work best.

    Draw from deck of cards to determine shooting order - high card.

    Leader picks starting place and shoots.

    Miss and you are out.

    First one to hit becomes new leader and order of those hitting remains the
    same as in first round.

    All miss then keep same order and leader picks starting place and repeat.

    To protect the club $$ a maximum of 10 targets/shooter/event. So if you had 7 shooters sign up then 70 targets consumed end the event and split the $21 pot among remaining shooters. You can change the entry fee to make it more or less exciting!!!

    Regards

    W&W

    Its like Horse but with shotguns ... If the leader misses then the next guy becomes the leader, if everyone hits the target the next in line becomes to new leader and picks his or her spot ... Last one with a shell is the winner ... Try shooting a Dove shoot, thats shooting from the adjoining trap fields on both sides of the one you are shooting targets off of ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    I agree with WPT. However the last two become a sudden death

    The way we do it leader picks the first spot, all shoot this spot, then the second man picks the next spot, all shoot, until 2 misses and he is out, then 3rd shooter is the leader, and so on, until shoot is over or back to 1st man again. you can get a one extra miss buy back for a dollar

    At my club, we do both as you describe and as WPT describes. I prefer the latter. It makes it more fun when you get to occasionally choose pick the shot as I usually never get to be squad leader.
