Records of Alabama White-tailed Deer (RAWD)

Target Downloads and Shooting Range Info

Sighting in a rifle is an activity that every hunter should do prior to each hunting season.  Don't let that trophy, whether it's a squirrel, doe or a big buck, escape this year because you didn't properly sight in your rifle.   Visit a shooting range near you to ensure your rifle is functioning properly and the bullet impacts where you are aiming.  Download and print a sight in target

The .22 caliber target is suitable for plinking and general target use when scoring a target is necessary.  It doesn't have any graduations/measurements for making scope adjustments.
