“I have always said I would not have President had it not been for my Experience in North Dakota” ~President Theodore Roosevelt

Welcome to the 2023 Rough Rider Rumble! Come to North Dakota and experience the magic and beauty of the rolling plains and foothills of the prairie and Bad Lands that inspired the likes of Roosevelt, Custer, Lois and Clark.

Come and test yourself, and your modern gear, in a place once reserved for only the hardest of men who wanted to hunt the great Buffalo and Mule Deer of the plains.

With about an hour drive, there is world class fishing at Lake Sakakawea, or head to the famous Medora located in the Theodore Roosevelt National Park.

The hunting-simulated event will consist of 18-20 stages, so prepare accordingly. Round count will be ~72-160 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.

Water will be provided throughout the match stages and lunch will be provided on Saturday. Sunday after the match finishes there will be a steak dinner at the awards banquet.

COMPLIMENTARY YOUNG GUN SLOTS available per a paid adult match fee (up to 5 free YG slots, per paid Adult).
