An Appleseed Known Distance event is a long range shoot and requires advanced skills. The targets may be placed at known distances anywhere from 100 to 500 yards. Only those that have previously attended an Appleseed and earned their Rifleman patch should sign up.
Participants will learn how to shoot rifles from practical field positions such as the prone, sitting, and standing positions. They will learn the techniques that will improve their accuracy: target identification, range estimation, and compensating for wind and distance.
And, as part of the Appleseed Project, participants also will also learn how civilian marksmanship played a pivotal role in the founding of our nation.
- Registration fees: $100 for both days or $60 for one.
- Range fees are $10 per person per day.

Participants supply their own centerfire rifles and ammunition.
