Beast Mode QUIVER SHIVER Archery Challenge Event Description
BMAC Quiver Shiver is a totally new event for 2023! As bow hunters here in the upper midwest we are very aware that we can be hunting in some pretty chilly weather come the rut and late season so why not have an outdoor competition in the dead of winter to mimic those conditions and test our abilities!
The exact details of the event are still to be determined and may not be fully known until a week or two leading up to the event since snow depth, temps, ice, etc will all play a role in the design of the competition. If the temps are forecasted to be bitterly cold (sub zero) the event will be designed to be a lap course where all competitors are active and moving at the same time. If the weather allows we could have a multistage event. When signing up for this event have the mind set of an out of state DIY hunt that you have not had the opportunity to scout as you can plan all you want and try to figure out each and every detail but you just won't know what to expect until you get boots on the ground!
The SNOW Beast Course
This course will start and finish near the snow tubing area and will cover the "haunted" trail that climbs the back side of the hill, some of the trails on top of the hill along with the ravine below the tubing area and the savanna which will be known as the tundra for this event. Competitors will also have their archery skills tested on this course with at least two 3D targets.
The Pursuit Course
Similar to the summer BMAC Games we will have an "obstacle" course with challenges that pertain to hunting. These exact challenges will be announced on game day!
Depending on the elements you may want to wear snowshoes, cleats, etc for footing but an update on this will be available in the days leading up to the event. We could have several inches to feet of snow or we could be dealing with hard pack snow/ice or possibly nothing but hard ground.
Each target you shoot is worth time taken off (bonus) or time added on (penalty) depending where you hit the target. The exact time penalty and bonus will be determined once we have a better understanding of the length of the course and amount of stages.
You must use the same archery equipment and backpack for every stage. You are allowed to cary optics at all times. Arrows must be carried in a quiver on your bow or in your pack. NO hip quivers allowed. Competitors are responsible for their own backpack weight.
Men - 30lb total pack weight
Women - 25lb total pack weight
The wilderness doesn't care what your age is!
There will be awards and prizes.
