MD: Jim See

DATE: April 28-30, 2023

LOCATION: Decorah, Iowa

Welcome to the 2023 Caldwell Little Hunt on the Prairie! 

The match is located in the rolling hills around Decorah Iowa and Directed by Jim See of Elite Accuracy LLC.

We have consistently provided an event that includes great shooting, great food, and excellent customer satisfaction. Last year’s match reviews were phenomenal and I will be stepping up the event in 2023. 

It will consist of 16-18 stages, so prepare accordingly. Round count will be ~72-144 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. The COF will consist of vital sized steel plates and animal shaped steel plates with the added realism of animal placards to assist in finding vital steel targets. Some targets will be full sized animals with a vital sized “score” plate. No targets will exceed 800 yards and most will be between 200-600.

We typically conclude each days shooting around 2pm, we will have a dinner at awards Sunday. Saturday you may wish to bring snacks with you for nourishment if you need it. Decorah and Calmar have some great craft breweries, and excellent restaurants, the area also has numerous trout streams. I encourage you to do some research online for afternoon entertainment while you are in the area. 


There are no refunds, Transfers will be accepted via email only. The slot owner must email the MD with the new shooter’s name and email address, no later than 14 days prior to the match, no transfers will be accepted after the 14-day window.
