DATE: May 19-21, 2023

LOCATION: Belt, Montana

We’re excited to welcome you to The Defiance anTi Social, presented by Defiance Machine. The match will be held in the Little Belt Mountains, 30 minutes east of Great Falls. This is a match you’ll want to attend! Last year the sponsors gave away 5 rifles! The rest of the prize table was stacked and the course of fire was epic! Thanks to all of the generous sponsors, this year is shaping up to be the same!

This match will be open to hunters to test their mental fortitude and resolve in realistic hunting-type scenarios. This hunting simulated event will consist of 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 average target distance will 650 yards, but expect anywhere from approximately 300-1000 yards.

The round trip walk for the entire course of fire is approximately 2 miles. The range is at 5,000 feet elevation so please by prepared with cold weather gear in case of inclement weather. Lunch will be provided on Saturday and dinner will be provided at the awards ceremony on Sunday. May in Montana can often mean highly unpredictable weather that includes snow and high wind. This high altitude location, in the picturesque Little Belt Mountains, provides a beautiful backdrop for a perfect weekend of shooting and socialization.

We look forward to hosting you at this great venue in everyone’s favorite state, Montana.
