Accepted appropriate dedicated activity: strictly only target practice with a hunting rifle to prepare for the hunt (can be on a shooting range or the hunting farm before the hunt as long as farmer signs as witness and farm's name is written on target).
Confirmation documentation: Only copies of practice targets are acceptable as confirmation documents for entry of shooting practice targets as activities. Members may use any NHSA activity practice target or any other target they prefer to practice their shooting skills. At submission, all activity practice targets must please have the Initials and Surname of member on, the date the target was shot on, the calibre and type of firearm used, the name of the shooting range plus stamp if available, plus a witness signature which includes the cell phone number of the witness (if you can you may also include a copy of the receipt you received at the range on that day). Correct confirmation documentation is important for appropriate evaluation purposes.
NHSA Postal Targets may not be used for Target Shooting Practice
Members are requested to keep originals of electronically submitted practice targets for at least three months after submission, and to ascertain that they keep documentation which can serve as confirmation that a practice target was shot on a specific range on a specific day for verification purposes by the NHSA office, should that be required (i.e. receipt, range stamp with date on target, photo of range register of the day, day shooter sticker issued at clubs, etc.).
Note 1: target practice is to be conducted in a formal manner on an accepted shooting range or on a NHSA Exco approved farm range.
Exclusions 1: shooting of tin cans or box targets behind the dam wall is not perceived to constitute target practice as an appropriate dedicated activity, as only sport shooting on publicly acknowledge ranges or on an Exco approved farm/private ranges are perceived to constitute sport shooting.
