WILDCAT HILLS 3D SHOOT FUNDRAISER
Jun 15 @ 8:00 am
West Nebraska Archery Association and Box Butte Archery Club will be holding the Annual Wildcat Hills 3D Shoot Fundraiser on June 15th, 2019. 

The shoot will be located in the Wildcat Hills 2 miles up Old Stage Hill Road off Highway 71 South of Gering, NE. Watch for the sign at the Highway and markers along Old Stage Hill Road. The start location is past the parking area at the top.
This year shooters will find a more friendly course to navigate as the terrain will be a lot easier to travel. There will still be challenging shots just not the steep ups and downs. This will make the shoot more enjoyable for the older and younger shooters. 
There will be two rounds of 20 targets starting at 8 AM with stakes being moved for the second round at 10 AM. So make sure to get there before 10 to get to shoot both rounds. Cost is $20 for adults and $10 for Youth under 14.
There will be NO LUNCH served so bring a lunch if you think you might want a bite to eat.There will be water at the start and midway through the course provided by the sponsors.
All targets will be realistic shooting situations ranging from 20 to 50 yards.  If you would like to bring your range finders we will allow those this year.
For more information please call Mike Thompson 308-631-3096 or Joe Poncelet 308-641-0322.
