Only missed no 10 on the tower,left edge of plate for no 9 and down it went. Gave outside left edge of plate to see pellet hit at 3 o'clock

Stupid and suicidal, lane 10 I think (after the standers) one went from right to left so I waited for it to go past before looking through the scope only to see its head come past the other way whilst aiming at it and then go back the other way after the shot was away. They must have known it was out of season and the shotgunners not there
