CLAY target shooter Jamie Dunn has drawn strong praise from his Warrnambool Field and Game counterparts after a standout showing at the club’s largest event of the year.

Dunn bagged a stunning 96 shots from 100 attempts in the high gun class.

The 26-year-old’s display was the best of the club’s Beretta Grand Prix, which drew 170 competitors to its Wickham Park base in Woolsthorpe.

President Geoff Morris said Dunn was of “international class”.

He said the event was aided by favourable weather and drew competitors from Victoria and South Australia.

“Jamie is definitely a class above. I’m not sure of all of his credentials but he’s an accomplished shooter,” Morris said.

“We had lots of shooters who were right up there in the top bracket. Young Jack Gibbs was another who shot well – he took out the double A grade.”

Andrew Caldwell took out the high gun handicap and B grade classes, while Mark O’Shannessy was the C grade champion with a score of 80 out of 100. Echuca’s Kiara Dean was the ladies’ champion.
