What To Expect
BMAC Games is a multi-staged event testing archers strength, stamina and endurance along with their shooting capabilities in high pressure simulated hunting scenarios. The ultimate archery challenge for the hunter athlete!
Competitors will be tested and timed in 3D archery, obstacle course and The Beast Course
The Beast Course
This stage will test the athletes endurance and stamina as the course that will take competitors on some of the most challenging terrain the venue has to offer. Athletes should expect steep ascents/descents, downfalls and anything else you may encounter in the wilderness. It is recommended to have trekking poles and good ankle support as you will be carrying a weighted pack and your bow. Just because this event is in the summer you may experience icy water!
This stage simulates that final push you have to close the distance on your prey. Imagine you have 30 minutes of daylight left and the bull just sounded off 1000 feet above you.... It's GO time! Competitors will be testing their strength and ability to sustain a high level of work in a short amount of time while shooting with an elevated heart rate. Athletes should be prepared to climb, crawl, lift, hoist and drag objects
The harvest stage will consist of a 15-20 target 3D course. This won't be your typical 3D shoot! Expect a real world hunting scenario for each target while utilizing some of the most challenging terrain features the venue has to offer. Shooting stakes will be set for Traditional 30 yards Max/ Compound 60 yards Max/ Crossbow 75 yards Max
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.
Division prizes will be awarded to stage winners.
Category prizes will be awarded dependent on total number of participants in each category. For every five participants/teams one place will be awarded up to a maximum of three places. i.e. if there are 12 participants in your category the top 3 will be awarded, if only 4 in your category then only 1st place will be awarded.
Teams are only eligible for category prizes.
