STEEL SAFARI: The Original Hike And Shoot Match. The Steel Safari is the archetypal “hike-and-shoot” long-range rifle match. It tests a wide spectrum of skills involved in getting to a shooting location, identifying targets, and engaging long-range rifle targets with only one shot each. Some of these skills include target recognition, ranging, wind doping, ballistic data management, marksmanship under field conditions, non-standard shooting positions, rudimentary trail skills.

BURRIS OPTICS TEAM CHALLENGE: A hard team match! This match is an extreme test of practical field shooting of rifles, carbines, and pistols, and supporting activities. Two-man teams will be required to navigate rugged desert / mountainous terrain, recognize, locate, range, and engage challenging rifle targets from compromised shooting positions, communicate with their partner and the range officer (RO), and do it under time constraints.

SNIPER ADVENTURE CHALLENGE: The Premier Tactical Adventure Race. You and your partner will undergo tests involving: land navigation; practical shooting with long-range rifle, carbine, and pistols; fieldcraft; problem solving; and other related tasks. Two-man teams will be required to navigate 30-60+ miles on foot to complete the course. Along the way, there will be a series of tasks to accomplish to gain additional points. These tasks may include: shooting problems with long-range rifle, carbine, and pistols; problem-solving; physical challenges; fieldcraft; communication; target recognition; memory; and other tasks.

SAVAGE BACKCOUNTRY XTREME HUNTER. A CAMP-BASED HUNTING CHALLENGE. NRL HUNTER and COMPETITION DYNAMICS have teamed up to bring you a multi-day backcountry hunting adventure! This match is a test of a two-man team’s ability to complete hunting-related challenges while based at a “spike camp” for three nights. A majority of the challenges will take the form of NRL-Hunter shooting stages. For these, both team members will be using rifles that fall into the same NRL-Hunter equipment division (Light, Heavy, or Factory). There will be other hunting-related shooting challenges using guns provided by the match. There will be hunting/field craft challenges, to specifically include coordinate-based and distance/bearing-based land navigation.

TEAM SAFARI: This is a team “hike-and-shoot” rifle match for long-range rifle, semi-auto “carbine,” and pistols. It will test a 2-man team’s ability to locate, range, and engage practical targetry spread in the terrain using both weapons systems. Some of the skills involved include target recognition, ranging, wind doping, ballistic data management, marksmanship under field conditions, non-standard shooting positions, rudimentary trail skills. You can think of the Team Safari as a Team version of the Steel Safari. This match is much easier physically than the TBTC and is more on-par with the Steel Safari.

THE “CODGERS AND MISFITS” MATCH. The STEEL SAFARI has evolved into an extremely competitive match. We have had a lot of feedback from shooters over 50, whose eyes have changed for the worse, that they simply cannot locate or see the targets. For everyone else, we all have guns that we might like to try competitively, but they simply wouldn’t be competitive against STEEL SAFARI Open-Division Rifles. Thus, we came up with this match at the request of JP Enterprises and others.

Need a couple RO's for Team Safari

Posted By: Zak Smith on September 30, 2021

We are seeking a few more RO’s for the upcoming TEAAM SAFARI, held in Logan NM at the Blue Steel Ranch, Oct 14-17. Prior competitors in any of our matches are ideal. We are specifically seeking RO’s with “Action Stage”, or 3-Gun, RO experience. As an RO you will be a “LEADER OUT” in the morning (experience with historic field course layout at BSR is a plus) AND/OR you will be an action-stage RO in the afternoons on Friday and Saturday.

We need RO’s there on Thursday, mid day, for RO briefings. RO’s may not shoot the T.S. for score, however, will can give you an opportunity to shoot some of the stages for fun. In addition, our RO program gives you credit for a future match. For reference, here is the CD Range Officer Program.
