On 02/14/2006 "Doug" posted his target on this Hunting, Forestry, and Shooting Forum, page 16, with a great description:

"I just got this great looking 1942 Named Rifle Shooting Stag Target Plate. The painting is a color print on heavy duty paper that is glued to a 1/4-inch-thick plywood plate that measures 18 inches across. There are five holes in it made by the bullets from the guys shooting at the stag --none hit the stag! The holes are larger on the backside and the shooters name is noted in pencil next to the hole so it could be painted in the front later in a nicer fashion. Hope you like the rather nice print. Bernd."

I found that JoeW posted two (1940 & 1939) German Police targets, 03/11/2006 on the thread "Shooting Awards / Prizes (Non Tyrol)" found on page 8. These are some very nice targets posted by JoeW.

Mikee, I did finally find a post WW Schutzenscheibe listed on the German eBay site with a tiny nail used to secure the small bullseye to the target. I also found a 2018 target with white pegs to mark the bullet holes and a red peg used to mark the winning "Kill Shot". All the pegs had the shooter's numbers on the peg heads.

Hi Wetzel,

I remember when Joe posted those targets. He is missed by all of us! Thank you, yes I have seen so many different ways that was used to mark and identify the winners and shooters. If I can get some time I will post some mare targets. Best!

I really like this 1936 target: "PAINTED TARGET FROM THE SCH√úTZEN MUSEUM COLLECTION". This is from the 1st web site link I posted on page 1.

A target such as this 1936 painted target from the year of the Olympics with 5 rings would probably command a high price.

I do like that target Mikee. The (1931) target format seems to be of a Hawk (or Eagle) killing a Rabbit, Weimar period (1919-1932), CIVILIAN type and target format of PRINTED PAPER.

While researching MARIA-SCHEIBE I found another (1929) target, Weimar period (1919-1932), CIVILIAN type, target format of a Hawk (or Eagle) killing a Rabbit on PRINTED PAPER.

Mikee, have you done any research on your 1931 target?

A search on Ancestry.com for Fritz Corell of Germany, born about 1900 (+ or - 10 years) found this record:

Fritz Corell
Kutcher/Caporusso Family Tree
Matching Person details
Spouse Katharina Sauer
Father Eduard Corell
Mother UNKNOWN UNKNOWN
Children Karl
Birth 27 Jan 1890 Niederaula, Hersfeld-Rotenburg, Hesse, Germany
Death 8 Feb 1968 Niederaula, Hersfeld-Rotenburg, Hesse, Germany

C. Wetzel notes: this 1 record may or may not be a match. However, Fritz Corell born 1890, would have been about the right age to be mentioned in a 1931 shooting match.

Mikee, I really like your 1933 two-tone wood target and the 1922, 1930 targets, they all have great hunting scenes.

Damast, thanks for the 1930's catalog pages, interesting heading "Munchener Scheibenverlag G. m. b. H.".

Scheibenverlag (targets publisher).

Hey DAMAST,

Thank you for the pictures.You are always very helpful and always much appreciated. I know of this company from my address book. Amazing how many companies made these.

Wetzel,

Thank you and glad you like them. I prefer the hunting animal scenes as well. These Targets have so many different printed scenes and topics. It's the hand painted targets that are very unique imo.

Target from 1891. Hand painted.

I appreciate seeing all the targets. On the 1938 target what were they shooting at? Something on the pole in the corner of the room?

Hey thanks Joe,

I have been wondering about that as well but because of the shot placement it's hard to tell. Might have to find it in one of my books to find out for sure. But for now it looks like a hiking stick with leaves and flowers on top. What's nice to see is some of the rounds went completely through the target but some are still stuck in the holes. Small caliber was used. I will try and post a small caliber target rifle with the rounds. Best!

Joe,

Here you go. Small caliber Target/Parlor rifle, fires 4mm ball ammo. Has double set triggers, adjustable diopter sight, heavy octagon barrel and is as heavy as the larger caliber Target Schuetzen rifle. Air guns were used as well. Best!

They are all very unique but what's really rare about this gun is, it has a left and right hand cheek rest for both left hand and right hand shooters. So I believe it was a club gun.

This hand painted 1936 Honor Target is one of my favorites. It hung for many years outside which is a understatement lol. This guy was a terrific shot, a hunter and professional dog trainer as well.

Mikee,

you have some collection of targets. I have seen your 1938, 1927 & 1936 targets just sold in April 2024 on the German eBay site.

Did the seller of the 1936 target also have the documents of Otto Webel?

Wetzel, I forgot to mention that it was Webel's daughter that I got it from.

Hey Joe, Not a problem thank you. You have always been a great help to not only me but many members.

This target which is hand painted is a famous one you see throughout the years depicting a dead poacher that is if my memory serves me correctly. I have read so much about this stuff so maybe lol.

I wonder if there was or is a science as to where the objects that become the points of aim are located?
Interesting subjects for targets.
Thanks.

Good question Joe,

The points of aim are known and it doesn't hurt to ask to be sure. It does make it fun and challenging because you better have excellent eye sight lol.

I remember firing at German military targets using all types of weapons. With the MG maching gun I fired at a large target showing a town with three, three ringed targets set at different places in the town on this target. These rings were not easy to see, you have to have great eyesight. You are given so many rounds and that's it and you had to have so many of those rounds hit inside the middle ring on all three targets and each round had to count. I had to literally push the gun forward to keep it stable. I fired short bursts into each of the three ring targets and qualified expert. Also qualified expert on all the German weapons I fired. I was the only one that did and there was a lot of shooters. I was lucky. Due to that I qualified for the German Schutzenschnur in gold and it was presented to me in a German formation by I was told a German General. I really don't know if true or not. But it sure was cool lol. Best!
