On today’s episode, Scott Satterlee joins Travis Ishida to talk about the development of the NRL HUNTER series, its purpose and the opportunities to train for the moment, the match format, the Grand Slam, and much more.
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 conservatists together in an innovative, competitive format for new and seasoned hunters to learn about their skills, gear, overall capabilities, and about local hunting terrains.
Unlike many other precision rifle competitions these matches will be geared towards practical hunting applications and designed to test all aspects of the competitors gear and skills. Matches will have blind stages meaning competitors will have to work as individuals to find range and engage targets within a set time frame. Competitors must carry all their gear throughout the entire match. The biggest two factors will be the rifles themselves. There will be 3 classifications: Open Heavy sub 16lbs, Open Light sub 12lbs, and Factory rifle which must meet a set power factor to qualify. Weight classification include everything mounted to the rifle such as scope, bipod, and sling but does not include the weight of the ammunition.
