MDs: Landon Michaels and Neal Emery

DATE: June 9-11, 2023

LOCATION: Cody, Wyoming

Join Gunwerks in Cody, Wyoming for the first ever Sheep Mountain Shootout!

The aptly-named Sheep Mountain, located 18 miles west of Cody, Wyoming is arguably one of the most visually stunning venues to date in the NRL Hunter series with the area home to Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, Rocky Mountain Elk, Mule Deer, Antelope, Black Bear, Wolves, Coyotes, and Prairie Dogs. This new venue for the 2023 season will test even the best hunters with high angle shots and extremely difficult wind conditions.

This hunting simulated event will consist of 18 stages. 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 be 400 yards, but expect anywhere from approximately 150 – 1,000 yards. This event is located at approximately 6,000-6,800ft elevation, directly at the confluence of the famous North and South Forks of the Shoshone River and situated overlooking Buffalo Bill Reservoir with breathtaking views. 

June in Northern Wyoming often offers the best weather of the year, but we could easily see everything from snow to 100F temps. Thunderstorms are common this time of year, so come prepared!

The terrain on sheep mountain is big and open, with interspersed sage brush and conifers. Steep angles prevail and due to the geography of the area, winds are notoriously tricky. This layered on with the surprisingly complex terrain will offer challenges for even the most accomplished hunter!

Team Division is for Teams consisting of 2 individuals. Scores will be the sum of both team member’s scores (possible 16 points per team per stage). Teams will be allotted a total of 6 minutes per stage, instead of the individual’s 4 minutes. If one team member is disqualified from competing the second team member may continue to compete, but not for score. Team member #1 must complete the stage or pass, and unload and show clear, before team member #2 may load and begin firing. Once team member #2 loads to begin the stage, team member #1 may not load again.

  1. Each member of the team must carry their own rifle. Support gear or ammunition may be divided among the team to best serve them. 
  2. Each team member may compete with a rifle meeting the requirements of Open Heavy Division (16lbs) or less.
  3. Listed matches shall allow a minimum of 10 teams to compete, however at the match director’s discretion they may allow additional teams to compete. The team division will have its own separate prize table and only the top team will be awarded a trophy. 
  4. Teams need to keep communication private while at a stage shooting area. Discussing ranges, locations or targets in obviously loud manner will scare away the game (stage will be ended and no more points awarded after a warning from the RO). This is to prevent hunters in the staging area from gaining a competitive advantage.
  5. Teams may use their rifle as an observation tool, however only one team member may have a loaded rifle at a time.
