At the New River 2 desert shooting spot

This event is a simulated rifle deer hunt in Arizona's
desert mountain country.

Set-up starts around 7:30 to 8:00 AM.
Event starts when set-up is complete.
The more setup help we get, the faster we can get started.

We will set up a number of e-Deer targets to be shot at from varying ranges up to 400 yards. Shooting will be from several positions at the targets which are positioned in the surrounding hills. The highest score that can be obtained is to make every opportunity a one-shot kill.

No pre-shoot practice! Make sure your rifle is ready to hunt when you arrive!
Field-worthy shooting aids and rangefinders are allowed.

What you might want to bring:
  • Your deer rifle in a minimum caliber of .243 Win.
  • You'll appreciate having a sling on your rifle for carrying.
  • 30 rounds of ammunition, though one box of 20 will do if you're a good shot!
  • Definitely bring walking water.
  • Binoculars
  • Wear your hunting boots.

IMPORTANT: Since this shoot takes a good deal of setup, it doesn't make sense to run the shoot if too few people will come. Therefore please send an RSVP to the club webmaster to confirm that you are planning to come. If too few people respond, the shoot will be canceled and the RSVP'ers will be notified of the cancellation by return email.

Entry Fee: $5. Guests are welcome.
