In the BEAUTIFUL, mountains outside of Pueblo, CO we will be picking up the shooting season in full stride going after the extreme animals of the world.  The match will be more of a canyon and draw hunting experience showcasing Colorado’s elk, mule deer and antelope habitat.

With an estimated 22 hunting simulated stages, the round count will be 88-176, 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 finding the targets in the hilly terrain hunting scenarios. All shooting stations will be along a mild uphill 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; The match will alternate every stage 1-2-4 target.

Friday there will be an 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.

Please be respectful of the property.

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.
