Welcome back to the Leupold Southern Hunting Challenge in the Arena for our NRL Hunter series event! The match will be held at Arena Training Facility in Blakely, Georgia.

Arena has over 2300 acres available, so hunters can expect a wide variety of stages. This match will be 80% natural terrain with targets ranging from 180 yards out to ~900 yards and will be based off realistic hunting you would expect here in South Georgia (Whitetail Deer, Wild Hogs, Coyotes, Turkeys, Squirrels, Rabbits).

With 18 planned stages, the max round count will be 144, but bring extra for getting velocity/PF for your tiebreaker, zero’ing your rifle, and potential side-matches. A tripod is highly recommended.

Hunters will be driving to stages, so it will be helpful if groups carpool as much as possible. This time of year is likely to have rain/mud, so pack accordingly.

*PLEASE COMPLETE ARENA TRAINING FACILITY’S ONLINE LIABILITY WAIVER, HERE. This must be completed to attend.

 

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.
