On today’s episode, Eddie Nolan joins Travis Ishida to talk about all things hunting, the 2022 Leupold Southern Hunting Challenge in the Arena hunter-style match, and much more!
Based out of Georgia, Eddie Nolan, has 20+ years of leadership experience, 25 years of military service, is the Director of Operations at Arena Training Facility, and will be co-directing the upcoming hunter-style match, 2022 Leupold Southern Hunting Challenge in the Arena. This event will be hosted in Blakely, GA the weekend of April 1-3, 2022.
Arena has over 2300 acres available, so Hunters can expect a wide variety of stages. The match will be 80% natural terrain with targets ranging from 180 yards out to 1000 yards and will be based off realistic hunting you would expect in South Georgia.
NRL HUNTER, a division of National Rifle League (NRL), is a series of competitions for hunters by hunters. It brings a combination of ethical hunters and conservationists together in an innovative, competitive format for new and seasoned hunters to learn about their skills, gear, overall capabilities, and about local hunting terrains.
