    I have a question about how running straight targets are counted in an ATA event...

    If a shooter hits a 25 straight in one of his 100 bird events , are the broken targets without a lost from the previous round and broken targets up to the lost in the next round count as a posible 50 straight..

    There is a guy here who hit his last 18 targets in the first round , ran a 25 for round two and hit the next 13 before he had a lost bird..

    This made a run of 56 targets without a lost...

    In an ATA event , does he qualify for to receive a 25 straight patch or one for 50 straight...

    Thank you in advance for any input , this is important to a new shooter...

    In an ATA event, it is the total of each 25 bird sub-event consecutively. His run

    was 56, but his straight was only 25.

    50 straight would be two consecutive 25 bird sub-events without a lost bird.

    100 straight would be 4 consecutive 25 bird sub-events without a lost bird.

    Hi Bob,

    The Atlantic's are held in St.John's , NFLD this year , so I will be staying home for that shoot , look forward to next year in N.S...

    Also there is Salmon Fishing , Camping , Shooting and Weddings which have me tied up for this summer...

    Maybe will look at coming to the Mainland in the fall..

    Just a note for the avid fishermen on this site , the Salmon are in our Rivers early this year , everyone are having a ball , looks to be good runs..
