I know we all have occasions to use the string to identify particular targets, glean whatever wind info we can etc, but please guys have a little though for your fellow shooters. Look around at adjacent targets before you yank the string skywards.
Course setters could really help to eliminate the problem too but pegging down strings which cross over and may therefore be likely to cause this effect. There are some great little pins with loops on the end which would do this nicely.
hello Brian, sometimes the course setters are in a no win situation, when strings get pegged, you also get shooters whinging that the strings are there to be used as a windage aid and shouldn't be pegged.... can't please everyone - I think I know the target you are on about if it was the gauntlet shoot?
