Default Getting started?

Hello, well I am completely new to hft, over the years I have been shooting mainly on relatives land and at my local indoor range.

I would like to shoot some hft competitions.

Am right in saying I can compete in the nefta hunter series as a visitor?

I am a little bit confused as to which competitions I can shoot in as a visitor? Do I need to be in a club?

In the future I may join a club but at the moment due to work hours being varied and a young family it's tricky.

But if I could plan dates around comps that would be great but I am just unsure as to how I know which I can just turn up for.

Any info would be great as I really want to try this sport. Thanks

Yes you can shoot the NEFTA hunter series as a visitor but cannot win the overall competition. You just shoot in the visitors class.

Dave, I shot as a visitor all last year in the NEFTA hunters. Insurance is included in the entry fee.

Visitors are welcome in the NEFTA Hunter series and are fully insured.

There isn't a Visitors league Mick, visitors scores count the same as everyone elses in the main league.
It's my programme that does the scoring and it's setup to treat Visitors the same way, so if you knock enough down you can win the league.
