Welcome to the 2023 Sooner State Safari!

Peeping into a bygone world, “Sooners” is the name given to the settlers racing to claim unassigned land in what we call Oklahoma today. Imagine preparing yourself for a race to the wild interior of that land where you will claim your new homestead. From the firing shot, the odds are against you; a run with other settlers, and a wildland needing to be tamed, await you.

Oklahoma is abundant with game. Elk, Bison, and Antelope wander the open plains, while deer, coyotes, and turkey inhabit the river bottoms. The bounty is endless, yet the great outdoor adventure awaits at every corner in the frontier. You must tame this wild land, hunt, build shelter, and survive.

Now, imagine you are being transported back there in time with your current gear and the advantage to succeed where others have failed. Are you up for the challenge?

These hunting simulated stages will be themed based on the Western Frontier. 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 average target distance will 350 yards, but expect anywhere from approximately 150-800 yards.

Expect to be fed lunch both days via an onsite chuck wagon. A primitive camping area will be available, with an evening community fire pit. Port-a-Potties will be on-site. Be prepared to change plans if weather forecast looks severe.



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.

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.
