Welcome to the 2023 NRL Hunter Season. Hunting the rolling plains of eastern Colorado you would never expect to come across the most EXTREME animals to ever roam the earth. T-REX, STEGASAURUS, TRICERTOPS, BRACHEASAURUS, AND YETI’s are expected to be on the menu for the hunters who dare to encounter such EXTREME animals.

With an estimated 20 hunting simulated stages, the round count will be 80-160, depending on first round impacts vs second round impacts, but bring extra for getting velocity/PF for your tiebreaker, and zero’ing your rifle. The average target distance will 400 yards, but expect anywhere from approximately 200-900 yards. The hardest part will be dealing with the wind and getting accurate ranges typical of flatter terrain hunting scenarios. All shooting stations will be along a nice flat path. Targets will be wide, to be friendly with wind, but very short to penalize bad ranging. This match will be a fun match with lots of shooting; expect the majority of the stages to have 4-targets.

Friday there will be an experimental NRL HUNTER RIMFIRE EXPERIENCE, if you so wish to participate. The rimfire hunter match will be from 8am-12pm (before sight-in of the highpower hunting rifles) so, bring your rimfire and get some trigger time in. There will be 6 stages for $40 entry fee. All the proceeds will go to non-shooting RO’s.

As the property is under contract for CRP, please park in designated areas only.

We will carpool up the hill to the shooting area.  If possible, one vehicle per stage would be ideal.

Weather can range from -20* up to 75* and windy to no wind.  Please come prepared.  Short of a whiteout snow, we will not cancel the match. If this happens, we may reschedule the dates.

Range Officers (ROs)

ROs WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR POINTS & PRIZES AT THIS EVENT. In the process of rewarding and securing quality ROs during the 2-day event, they have been offered the opportunity to complete all stages in a 1-day timeframe (on the RO Shoot Day), for points amongst the other hunters and prize eligibility. Their opportunity at this is set to take place on the competitor Check-in Day. ROs to be secured at least 30 days from the event, where the difference in the weather forecast between the days is unknown.

*Update on On-site camping:

CAMPING: there is just too much snow for campers. Luckily, there is a campground 10 miles to the east in Anton, CO. The name of the place is Prairie Motel and Campground.  It has hookups and I believe is $35 a night. I would highly recommend this location. 1-970-383-2211
