Payson, AZ
March 15-17, 2019

Three courses set up within one of the best hunting units in Arizona.  Featuring rocky ledges, tall pines and open meadows.  Water in Sharp Creek is never a guarantee, but the good times definitely are. 


The Southwest course is approximately a 3 mile hike with 20 targets ranging from 25-100 yards.  The Rinehart course is a little over a 2 miles with 20 targets ranging from 20-70 yards.  The most challenging is the 10 target HHA course.  It has some arduous hiking and difficult, long range shots with one at 100+ yards!


The Skills Challenge will have three unique shots with chances at great prizes from our sponsors.  These shots will definitely test your accuracy as well as your sanity.

On-site camping is available, on a limited basis, reservations are required.  There are also many dispersed camping areas nearby within the Tonto National Forest.  These are first come, first used and all Forest Service rules apply.


Limited food and drinks will be available during the entire event, however, you are welcome to bring whatever you think you will need.  Please see the FAQ page for additional suggestions.
