What To Expect

BMAC Games presents a thrilling, multi-staged competition that pushes archers to their limits, evaluating their strength, stamina, endurance, and shooting prowess in intense simulated hunting scenarios. This event serves as the ultimate test of skill for hunter athletes. Participants will undergo timed challenges in a variety of disciplines, including 3D archery, an obstacle course, a meat pack challenge, and The Beast Course. Each stage presents unique obstacles and scenarios, demanding precision, agility, and mental fortitude from the competitors.


Join us for BMAC Games, where archers can showcase their abilities and experience the exhilaration of a true hunting adventure within a competitive setting. Are you ready to take on the ultimate archery challenge?


The StealthRig 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.  New for 2023, Competitors must wear their weighted backpack during this stage.  You won't necessarily have to shoot every target with your pack on but there will be a few.  You should also expect a few targets where you will need to judge the distance as range finders will not be allowed.  


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.  BMAC will supply the additional weight.


Men's and Women's Open Division (18-44yrs)

Men's and Women's Masters Division (45yrs+)

Team Beast Division


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!


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, sight magnification or range finding binoculars or range finding sights.  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.  

Pack Weight(competitor is responsible for your own pack/weight):

Men's: 25lbs

Women's: 20lbs

Teams: Weight is based on gender but you can distribute the weight however you want.  

Pack Out Stage Weight:
