    SHOOTING EVENT DETAILS

    3D COURSE

    The couse consists of 15 Rinehart 3-D targets at unmarked distances. We'll try to keep the furthest shot under 45-ish yards. Each shooter will get 1 arrow per target. Targets will be scored 0 (miss), 5 (body), 8 (lungs), 10 (heart) and we will be keeping track of your 12 rings for purposes of a tie breaker.

    You can shoot the course as often as you'd like, but your score only counts from your FIRST time through the course. You must have a witness sign your score card before turning it in.

    No rangefinders are allowed! Binoculars are okay.

    Crossbows are allowed on the course, but are not eligable for prizes.

    Shoot Classes:

    Men's Hunter - No scoped sights, no stabilizers over 12 inches
    Men's Target - Open. Shoot whatever you want.
    Women's Hunter - No scoped sights, no stabilizers over 12 inches
    Women's Target - Open. Shot whatever you want.
    Youth (16 and under) - Open
    Kids (10 and under - FREE) - Open

    Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in Men's Hunter division only. All other classes awards will be presented for 1st place only. In the event of a tie, the 12 ring (x count) will determine the winner. In the event that is tied as well a single arrow shoot-off will take place to determine the winner.


    LONG DISTANCE SHOOT

    Throughout the day each participant will get one shot from an unknown distance. If your arrow hits within the designated marker you will qualify for the Long Distance finals held at 2:00 pm.

    Shooters will be broken into groups and each shoot will get one arrow per round. The two closest arrows to the center of the target will win that group and move on to the final. For the final round all shooters will get one arrow, with the closest to the center being the winner. The winner of this event will receive a new Can Cooker.

    If you miss the target you are automatically eliminated.

    IRON BUCK CHALLENGE

    All participants will get a single shot from a distance TBD. If you make it in the foam, you advance to the next round. If you don't, you're out (and so is your arrow). Each round we will move back 10 yards until we have a single winner. The winner of this event will take 1/2 the pot of monies collected.​
