    Train to hunt

    Has any of our members tried the Train to Hunt challenge?

    They are coming back to Reno this year and I'm going to give it a try. By no way do I think I have a chance to win but I would like to finish the corse with what I think is a difficult time for me but more importantly make accurate shots with my bow.

    I've seen these going on for a few years and the one in Oregon (Cameron Hayes).
    If they were not so far away, I'd be all up in that!

    They have them all over the place. I would be surprised if they weren't in OR.

    I missed one just down the road from me last year. Yes, I would love to do it this year. Either OR or ID looks the closest. Both on June 3rd it appears. Looks fun.

    I have done the challenge four times now. Once in Colorado and three times in Wyoming. Great fun and grinding exercise. I wouldn't miss it if was in my hometown. If you have any particular questions shoot me a PM or ask away here.

    It looks like there is one in Casper this year and I am planning on participating.

    Are there any restrictions for equipment of if I hunt with it, I can compete with it. Curious about stabilers, quivers that sort of thing?
    A hunt based only on the trophies taken falls far short of what the ultimate goal should be. -Fred Bear

    Mgorm,
    The rules are posted on the site (https://www.traintohuntchallenge.com/ Basically it has to be a hunting setup (no hip quivers). Stabilizers,releases, etc are restricted such that if you shoot it for the 3D course you have to shoot the same setup for the challenge course. I know that the new videos are posted... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCf5...F9lNKUwcc7zGyA
