A CAMP-BASED HUNTING CHALLENGE
SAVAGE, 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 field-style 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.
A team should be able to efficiently locate, identify, range, and engage practical targetry spread in the terrain using both rifles. Some of the skills involved include target recognition, ranging, wind doping, ballistic data management, marksmanship under field conditions, non-standard shooting positions.
Teams will hike in all their own equipment, including camping equipment, to establish their "spike camp" at a designated location. Once in the field, all movement will be done on foot.
Since re-scheduling to 2023 and the political problems with Cameo, we are moving this match to one of CD's primary event sites: the Wills Ranch in Douglas WY. We have run matches here since 2012, including the Snipershide Cup, Team Challenge (under the TBAC, US Optics, and Burris headline banners), Rocky Mountain Steel Quest, and the Sniper Adventure Challenge.
Check-in address will be sent to match participants before the match.
