Welcome to the Vortex Whitetail Madness, the first ever NRL HUNTER match in Missouri! This match will provide realistic challenging hunting scenarios in the fields of Northeastern Missouri where you can find Whitetail deer, coyotes, and many different kinds of small game. 

This hunter experience includes open corn and bean fields, rolling hills, tall tree lines, and a few surprises.

We recommend dressing appropriately, for the late March weather. It could be cold and muddy. 

This hunting simulated event will consist of 16 stages, so prepare accordingly. Round count will be 64-128 rounds, depending on your skill level completing each stage with either 1st round impacts, vs misses/2nd round impacts, but bring extra for getting velocity/PF for your tiebreaker, and zero’ing your rifle.
