It is not required to shoot the match, but great to support the PRS and track how you are doing against other shooters all year..

This match is VERY unique; not only because it is a hiking course with round trip, between 2-4 miles depending on your draw, or the fact that you get to shoot across several canyons, a diverse AOF, but because it also is combined with TWO matches happening at the same time. We have the entry level match called the Prone Division where the shooters get almost 2x the time as positional shooters and a Open Positional Division.

PRS / Open Division: (You can absolutely shoot the Open division as your first match.. it is supportive and friendly too!!!!)

Hiking the course between 2-4 miles depending on your draw. This is a PRS one day match. There is a strict COF that must be followed if you post your score in this division (gaming is NOT ok). If you deviate from a COF, take extra shots or "game it", it is a Stage DQ. Because obstacles are only about 1/2 the time and 50% harder (way more unstable) and it takes way longer to build a position, than prone. It is not uncommon, for someone to shoot about 1/2 the points when they switch to obstacles.

Prone Division: (This is our entry level division)

The targets are VERY generous for prone shooter. It is fashioned after the Whittington Center in New Mexico, where the COF never changes. It is ideal, for hunters people wanting to shoot a variety of distances and AOF and see what they can do with 1 shoot per target, people looking to vet their range dope, practicing wind holds and of course great for your first several matches.

You can shoot it slowly or challenge yourself. This works because prone "is the most stable" position. You can practice using only your tripod or shooting sticks, use your tripod in combination with obstacles, practice on all or just a few obstacles while still using the longer prone time limits. You can shoot your standard hunting gun off a backpack or your race gun.. The key is that you must submit your score as a prone shooter and is not part of the PRS regional series points. Really you can do so much, learn so much.. You'll often shoot next to the people on Obstacles so you'll get to see how they build their positions. I think this is the only match that allows such a diverse approach to shooting styles. Consider this a chance to just to shoot long range more than a "match".

Hope to see you out there Jim T

If you guys haven’t yet, please register on Practiscore - it makes the match so much easier to run.. plus we’ll have a better handle on the number of shooters.

When the wind drops out here, top scores start stacking up; It was a tight match the difference between 1st and 8th was 4 shots!! BTW the match was a very small turnout, but it was on Father's Day.

One bad trigger press or out of sequence target and you could drop several spots — salt of the earth crew so everyone is a winner in my book!

Come out and camp the night before ~ Unfortunately I might be a shooting another match so will most likely miss July - August we are not holding a match because of the heat.. SEPTEMBER IS THE LAST PRS SW REGIONAL QUALIFIER and November is a 2 person TEAM UKD Field match —-

Get signed up very limited spots for the Team Mach.. yes you can use a range finder!
