What To Expect

BMAC King of the Hill 3D Shoot is the midwest's most realistic 3D shoot that simulates what you will experience on your western hunts.  40+ target event testing archers shooting capabilities designed to get you ready for your hunt this fall.  Targets will be spread out over Tyrol Basin Ski Hill on three unique courses with 12+ targets per course.  Shots will simulate everything from a steep, rocky sheep hunt to a flat land pronghorn hunt making this the ultimate archery challenge for bowhunters!

Expect long, challenging shot scenarios!  The King of the Hill 3D is known for the long, extreme shot scenarios.  New for 2022 we will have two shooting stakes on targets that allow for it.  We are calling them the western and midwestern distances.  Scoring is for bragging rights only!  This is a fun, laid back event.  Parking is FREE, no long lines and a lot of good times and memories to be made.

 

You are able to shoot multiple courses each day!  When registering you will select your starting course and time.  Once all the start times have passed you are allowed to go out on your additional course(s) if you choose.  In the effort to keep things moving efficiently please be considerate with the amount of time you spend on each target.  Choose either the long shot option(cone) or closer shot option(flag) but don't shoot from both.  If the flag is stuck in the cone then that means there is only one distance for that target.  New for 2023: There will be an order in which you can shoot the courses in the effort to eliminate congestion.  The order will go Western Range to Front Range to Savanna Range.  For example if your starting course is the Front Range then the next course you will be able to shoot once the starting times have passed will be the Savanna Range.  If your starting course is the Savanna Range your second course of the day will be the Western Range.  It would be awesome to have a fourth course but we just don't have the realestate to make that happen at this time.  

2023 Updates:

I want to thank all the participants that took the time to complete the 2022 survey.  There was a lot of great feedback and we will be taking several changes into consideration for 2023.  To summarize the survey over 60% of participants responded!  Some results...  Would you participate again? 96% Yes, 4% Maybe, 0% Hard Pass.  Tell us about your overall experience? 95% EPIC, 4% Take it or Leave it, 1% Step up your game next year!.  Should we keep the charilift for 2023?  59% Yes, 34% Take it or Leave it, 7% Nope, I need my exercise!  Should we keep the tough shots(technical shots with trees, branches, etc)? 72% Yes, that is what makes this event unique!, 11% No, my arrows are too expensive! 17% wrote in comments.  Did you utilize the closer shooting position? 81% No, 13% Some, 7% All of them!

Courses:

Front Range - You can hike up or take the chairlift up Tobel to the top!  The course will start at the top main slopes before heading down sunrise and into the woods on the eastern side of the property.  Expect realistic shots and moderate terrain.   The Front Range will have approximately 14 targets.  (If there is a lightning strike close by the lift will be shut down for 10 minutes past last strike). Lift will be operating from noon-5 on Friday, 8-3 on Saturday and 8-noon on Sunday.  Keep this in mind when determining if you want to shoot this range throughout the day.  

Western Range - This course will cover the most aggressive terrain on the the property with long shots and steep angles!  The Western Range will start with the crowd favorite pond shot before ascending and descending the slopes on the wester half of the property several times.  Expect to have around 14 targets on the Western Range.

Savanna Range - This course will be rolling with woods and open prairie.  Expect some long bombs on exotic creatures.  The first few targets on the Savanna Range will start on the opposite side of Bohn Road before crossing back and heading up a technical ravine to reach the large prairie where you will finish the 14 target course.  Do as you were taught... Look both ways when crossing the road!

 

When registering you will be able to select your desired course and shoot(UNLEASH) time that you want to start with.  It is recommended that you register everyone in your party at the same time to be guaranteed the same UNLEASH time.  UNLEASH times are available every twenty minutes from noon-3:40pm on Friday, 8am-11:00am on Saturday and 8am - 10:40am on Sunday.  Each UNLEASHED time has 12 slots available for each course.  We ask that you keep your group to 6 shooters or less to help prevent delays.  Registered shooters can shoot the courses as many times as you would like on the day you are registered but you must wait until after all the UNLEAHSED times have passed to start your second course.  Must be off all courses by 7:30pm on Friday, 6:30pm on Saturday and 2pm on Sunday 

*If you are registering your group PLEASE use each individuals email or forward them the appropriate information!  One of the most common complaints I get is people not having the appropriate information to prepare themselves.  This complaint is usually the result of the person signing up the group under one email.  

Each shooter will be entered to win prizes from our sponsors/supporters!  FREE event T-Shirts will be provided to those that register by July 1st!.  These are custom shirts specifically for this event and the size you enter when registering.  If you are registering your buddies please be sure to have their correct shirt size as we will not be able to exchange them at the event.

Common Questions:

What time can I start shooting the second course?  To ensure everyone has a good experience with no long waits you will not be able to start a second course until all the shoot times have passed.  This means you will be able to start shooting your second course on Friday at 4pm, Saturday and Sunday at 11am on a first come first serve basis.  If earlier shoot times are not full you may be able to start earlier but check in with registration before doing so.  

When should I show up? You can show up anytime the event is open and shoot the warm up range or the novelty shots.  Remember to get there early enough to check in before your Unleash Time.

I don't have a sight tape that goes out past 80 yards will there be long shots?  YES!  There may be shots at 100+ yards.  As this is a fun shoot you can shoot from a closer distance that you are comfortable with.  We will have a closer shooting stake at targets that can accommodate it.  Bring a lot of arrows!!

Once I'm on the course how do I get back to my vehicle/base camp?  There is no short cutting or walking the course backwards as you will be at risk of getting SHOT!  You must walk the course from start to finish once you start.

Will there be water on the course?  Yes, there will be water at base camp and at the half way mark of each course.  bottled water is free to those that pre purchase a meal plan from Tyrol Basin.

Can I use broadheads?  ABSOLUTELY NO BROADHEADS!

Can I bring my dog on the course?  No pets are allowed on the course.  Dogs must be leashed at all times in the parking and common areas.

Are boots recommended?  Yes!  you will be traversing a lot of steep terrain.  You may want to wear long pants if you plan to look for lost arrows as you will encounter poison ivy and other poisonous plants

DISCLAIMER: This is not your typical 3D shoot you would have at your local club!  Expect to miss a target and lose/break an arrow or two.  Expect to have to hike a lot and possible bushwack to find lost arrows.  If you take yourself too serious this may not be the event for you.
