A Groundhog Shoot is a type of precision rifle sporting event. While classes of rifle vary, the event generally uses paper groundhog targets set at multiple distances. There are normally three yardages in the match, for example targets at 100, 200, and 300 yards, though these may vary.
The paper targets have concentric scoring rings. The smallest ring is normally worth ten points while the large ring is worth five points; the goal of the event is to achieve highest number of points. Tie breakers may be determined by total number of dead center or “X” strikes; or, by smallest group at the farthest distance.
