Come join us for the first ever NRL Hunter match in Texas! This event will be held on the 685-acre natural terrain facility of Caprock Rifle Club, conveniently located 30 minutes southwest of Lubbock, TX. West Texas Ordnance is co-located with the range, so shooters will have access to a full pro shop and gunsmith for any hardware needs. Stages will be based around likely hunting scenarios encountered in the High Plains and Panhandle region. Weather should be warm but come prepared with rain gear as spring thunderstorms are a possibility.  Zero and data confirmation targets will be available on Friday. The match will consist of 18 stages, with 10-12 stages shot on Saturday and the remainder on Sunday with the intent of match completion by lunchtime. Lunch will be provided on Saturday and Sunday, with water and snacks on site. The course of fire is spread out over a 2.5-mile loop of gently rolling terrain, and we will have shuttles running to move competitors through the stages for those who don’t wish to walk.

No refunds will be available but if you need to sell your slot just keep us in the loop and we can adjust as needed.


All Match attendees and RO’s will receive an automatic 10% discount off any purchase in the West Texas Ordnance Inc. retail store (located on site) from 5/30-6/2/2024!

Complimentary Young Gun slot is included with purchase of Adult slot. Also applies to Team signup if you are shooting with your Young Gun as a Team.


To help us reward and better secure quality ROs during the 2-day event, vetted individuals will be offered a complimentary match slot for the opportunity to complete all stages in 1-day timeframe (on the RO Shoot Day), for points amongst the other hunters and for prize eligibility. The opportunity at this is set to take place on the competitor Check-in Day.

*IF you’re interested in ROing this event, please submit to the following RO Application: HERE. Anyone may apply, however, space is limited and not guaranteed. Those who volunteer to RO but are not selected will have the option to purchase a slot.
