Welcome to the 2023 NRL Hunter Season. The 2023 MDT Hunter Challenge will take place in the foothills of Northern California outside of Arbuckle on the famous 360 Ranch. This 10,000 Acre Ranch hosts some of the best wild boar and blacktail hunting available in California and we’ll be shooting the match throughout the natural terrain and steep canyons of the ranch.
We will be offering a precision rifle hunting course as well as some pig hunts, slots will be limited. Lunch and Snacks will be provided on Saturday and we will be having an early awards and food banquet on Sunday with snacks and drinks provided during the day.
The weather can vary a bit this time of the year so be prepared for light rain or blue skies with colder temps in the morning.
With an estimated 18 hunting simulated stages, the round count will be 72-144, depending on first round impacts vs second round impacts, but bring extra for getting velocity/PF for your tiebreaker, and zero’ing your rifle. The average target distance will 555 yards, but expect anywhere from approximately 200-950 yards.
There are no refunds. Transfers will be accepted upon MD approval and via email. The slot owner must email email@example.com the new hunter’s name and email address, and wait for approval.
