Englishman James McLachlan was crowned the 9th World Hunter Field Target Championship, held last weekend at the Kelmarsh Country Show in Northamptonshire after he shot an impressive score of 115×120 over the weekend.
The fully-subscribed airgun shooting competition saw 360 entrants from around the world shoot a 30-target course in the estate’s woodland using state-of-the-art PCP and recoiling airguns. Renowned as the largest airgunning competition of its kind, the competition was fierce over the weekend with only five points separating the top eleven competitors.
