From the 1890s until the U.S. entry into World War 1, the target shooting game known as Schuetzen was in its Golden Age. Rifle shooting contests were held at Schuetzen parks across the U.S. in cities large and small. With deep European roots, Schuetzen has origins that reach back more than half a millennium.
A new book from Wright Galleries brings to life the old Schuetzen tournaments that were immensely popular at the turn of the 20th century. ”The Golden Age of the American Schutzenfest; A History and Study of the Marksman’s Art” by Randolph Schreiter Wright is a masterful and visual journey into the history of the Schuetzen game. It explores several famous Schuetzen parks, tells stories of memorable Schuetzenfests and legendary target shooters who’s marksmanship was a high art.
From the 1890s until the U.S. entry into World War 1, the target shooting game known as Schuetzen was in its Golden Age. The book explores the Schuetzen game and how matches were conducted, highlights the various shooting events, targets and rifles of the time, and provides comprehensive detail on how to load and shoot the magnificent old target rifles for precision accuracy.
