The Schuetzen came to America with German immigrants and is used in challenging long-range competition. Its German root is from the word Schütze which can be translated as “shooter.” The Schuetzen is both a rifle and a style of competition steeped in European shooting tradition. The original Schuetzens that arrived with German immigrants were muzzle loaders. Breech Loading Schuetzens are now the rule in competition. Matches are shot at 200 yards with a specialized Schuetzen target.
The OCSA 50th Anniversary Schuetzenfest rifle match will take place on August 2, 3 & 4, 2019. Due to the special nature of this event and anniversary, OCSA’s Board of Directors have approved the closing of ranges except for competitors as listed below. Spectators welcome!
