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, sled drag/meat pack and The Beast Course

 

Stages

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.  There will be at least two targets and a glassing challenge on this course.  There will be a 2.5 hour time cap for the 3.5 mile course.  You will be pulled from the course but you will still be able to participate in the remaining stages.

 

The Pursuit

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

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 women/men at 40/60 yard max.

 

The Pack Out

Before you can reap the rewards of your success the real work begins!  It is now time to pack out your meat.  Competitors will start at the base of the hill by loading their appropriate weight into their packs.  This weight will be in addition to the weight they had used in the Beast and Pursuit Stages.  i.e. Mens Elite are required to cary 80lbs.  BMAC will supply the additional 40 pound sand bag to be added to the already 40 pound pack.  

Scoring

Each target you shoot is worth time taken off (bonus) or time added on (penalty) depending where you hit the target.  A heart shot is worth a two minute bonus while a lung shot has no time bonus or penalty.  A body shot will be a three minute penalty while a miss is a two minute penalty.  That's right!  You get penalized more for "wounding" the target instead of missing.  

With approximately 26 targets throughout three of the four stages you can see that there is a lot of time to be made up or lost by your shooting skills!

Equipment

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.  BMAC will provide the additional pack out stage weight.  This weight will consist of gravel inside a polypropylene sandbag and must be carried inside or attached to your pack.  

Awards

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.
