What To Expect

Qhiver Shiver Logo 2024 WHITE.png

BMAC Quiver Shiver  was a totally new event in 2023 and we are bringing it back in 2024!  As bow hunters here in the upper midwest we are very aware that we can be hunting in some pretty chilly weather come the rut and late season so why not have an outdoor competition in the dead of winter to mimic those conditions and test our abilities!


The exact details of the event are still to be determined and may not be fully known until a week or two leading up to the event since snow depth, temps, ice, etc will all play a role in the design of the competition.  If the temps are forecasted to be bitterly cold (sub zero) the event will be designed to be a lap course where all competitors are active and moving at the same time.  If the weather allows we will have a multistage event.  When signing up for this event have the mind set of an out of state DIY hunt that you have not had the opportunity to scout as you can plan all you want and try to figure out each and every detail but you just won't know what to expect until you get boots on the ground!



The SNOW Beast Course

This course will start and finish near the snow tubing area and will cover the "haunted" trail that climbs the back side of the hill, some of the trails on top of the hill along with the ravine below the tubing area and the savanna which will be known as the tundra for this event.  Expect a mass start with a course that is around 2 miles in length.  Competitors will also have their archery skills tested on this course with up two 3D targets.  

The Pursuit Course

Expect a short, intense course!  This will include a sled drag and farmer carry along with four shots.  This stage will be run in heats with each competitor completing the stage one time   

Harvest Course

There will be between five and ten targets 3D course.  Each target will represent a scenario you may encounter while hunting such as having to shoot kneeling, a quick follow up shot, a long hold, etc.  Expect ranges no further than 50 yards with most targets scenarios allowing a range finder.  

Please Note:  The weather and current conditions may influence the layout of the event.  


Each of the three stages is worth 100 points.

Beast and Pursuit Course:

1st place = 100pts

2nd place = 95pts

3rd place = 90pts

4th place = 85pts

5th< = 84, 83, 82, etc.

Arrows for the Beast and Pursuit Course:

Heart = 10pts

Lung = 6pts

Miss = 0pts

Body = -10

*If temps are dangerously cold we will combine these two stages into one at which point this stage will be valued at 200 points.  


Harvest Course:

10 targets with each target scoring 10, 6, 0, -10 for the heart, lung, miss, body.  

*If temps are dangerously could we will have five targets scored as 20, 12, 0, -20.
