The running deer targets were the same as used at Stockholm and Antwerp, with a deer silhouette and five scoring zones, from 1-5. The events were shot 100 metres with each shooter getting 10 shots for a 50 possible. The deer target ran across a 23-metre opening in four seconds, and one shot was fired on each run. The event was won by Major John Boles of the United States, with a 40. There was a three-way tie for second place at 39, with a barrage giving the silver medal to Britain’s Cyril Mackworth-Praed, and the bronze won by Norway’s Otto Olsen.
