BMAC King of the Hill 3D Shoot 

Experience the Midwest's most authentic 3D shoot, meticulously crafted to replicate the challenges you'll encounter on your upcoming western hunts. Our 40+ target event is specifically designed to prepare archers for their fall hunting adventures. Spread across the breathtaking Tyrol Basin Ski Hill, three distinct courses await, each including 15 targets. Prepare yourself for the ultimate bowhunting challenge!

Anticipate a series of long and demanding shot scenarios. The renowned King of the Hill 3D event is celebrated for its extreme distance shots. In 2022, we introduced two shooting stakes per target, offering both western and midwestern distances. Please note that scoring is purely for personal pride, as this event maintains a fun and relaxed atmosphere. With free parking, minimal queues, and countless memories waiting to be created, expect an exceptional time.

Shooters have the opportunity to tackle multiple courses each day.

 

During registration, choose your initial course and corresponding start time. Once all designated start times have passed, participants are free to explore additional courses, if desired. To ensure smooth operations, please be considerate of time spent on each target. Select either the long shot option (cone) or the closer shot option (flag) for a target, but not both simultaneously. If a flag is stuck in the cone, it indicates a single distance for that particular target. Excitingly, in 2023, we have implemented a specific order for shooting the courses, reducing congestion. The order will follow as Western Range, Front Range, and Savanna Range. For instance, if your starting course is the Front Range, the subsequent course available after the start times have passed will be the Savanna Range. Similarly, if you begin with the Savanna Range, your second course of the day will be the Western Range. While it would be fantastic to offer a fourth course, our current space limitations prevent us from doing so.

Prepare yourself for an exceptional archery experience that mirrors the challenges of western hunts at our Midwest's 3D shoot. With meticulously designed courses, challenging targets, and a fun-filled atmosphere, we guarantee a memorable event that will enhance your bowhunting skills for the upcoming season.

Registration gives you unlimited access to the practice range and courses during the allotted time as well as a lift ticket, participant t-shirt(sign up by July 15th) and door prizes.

Jeff's Performance Archery Shop will be on location Saturday and Sunday with their mobile shop to help you with any of your archery needs and to resupply your lost/broken arrows! They will also have their lab radar setup to measure your arrow speed and energy.  

Courses:

Front Range - Follow directional arrows and BLUE flags.  The Front Range will utilize the main slopes up from Base Camp including "Tobel", "Sunrise" and "Gentle Ben" along with the area at the top of A and B lift.  This course will also take you across Bohn Rd and back.  Expect to do some climbing but nothing that is extreme.  This course will have a few long range shots on the slopes as well as some technical scenarios in the woods.  Our goal is to have 14 targets on this course.  

StealthRig Western Range - Follow directional arrows and YELLOW flags.  This course will cover the most aggressive terrain on the the property with long shots and steep angles!  Expect steep terrain and a lot of elevation gain and loss.  Our goal is to plan a brand new route for 2024 while still including some the iconic shot scenarios the course offers.  The Western Range will start at the mouth of "The Underwood Way" and will utilize all the slopes on the western side of the property from "Yodeler" to "Bump Buster".  This course is no joke!  Be mentally and physically prepared.  Expect to have around 14 targets on the StealthRig Western Range.

Savanna Range - Follow directional arrow and WHITE flags.  '24 will be the first year we utilize C lift giving you a new look of Tyrol Basin.  The Savanna Range will start with the popular pond shot before taking the lift to the top.  The course will follow part of the "Terror at Tyrol" haunt trail which will take you to the longest shot of the event 120+ yard buffalo.  From there you will work your way around the large open field before dumping into a ravine with some technical shots and ending near the Tubing Hill parking lot(camping location). 

Practice Range - The 20 target practice range is brought to you by the Barneveld Tree Eagles.  You will have unlimited access to the range on each day you are registered to shoot.  Targets will be placed so you have ample opportunity to practice those long range shots before heading out on the course.

Click here to view the Tyrol Basin trail map to help you understand where everything is.

Each shooting position will have a cone.  If there is not a closer shooting position marked, the orange flag will be stuck in the top of the cone.  If the flag is not in the cone then it is somewhere between the cone and target.

CAMPING There is camping available on site but please note it is will be primitive camping with access to tubing hill restrooms.  There will be limited spaces available with 20 tent and 20 RV spots.  You will be able to reserve your spont during registration and pay cash in person for camping.  Base Camp and the practice range is a short walk.  Quiet time from 11pm-6am (No Generators)

Course Etiquette and SAFETY:

- If your group is consistently holding up groups behind you please pick up the pace or allow them to shoot through. 

- DO NOT change the shot angle!  You can move closer to the target but stay in line between the shooting cone and the target to keep the course safe in the event of an arrow that is over shot.

- When looking for a "lost arrow" have someone in your group stand next to the target or cover the target so group behind you knows not to shoot!

- Please allow time for group ahead of you to clear the target and exit field of view beyond or along side target before shooting

- DO NOT cross any caution tape or ribbon flagging

- When riding the chair lift with a backpack and bow it is best to take off your pack and hug it with one arm while holding bow in other arm.  Use caution with hip quivers

- Absolutely NO Alcohol or broadheads on the courses! 

Novelty Shots:

The long shot clay pigeon will be back!  Last year is was 114 yards.  Expect a similar distance for 2023.  $5 for 3 arrows.  Every $5 will get you an entry and every broken pegion will earn you 5 entries to win the Vortex 10x42 Razor HD and tripod combo.

New for this year... 

Steal Buck - $5 per arrow.  Expect a 35-45 yard shot. Each clean shot earns you an entry to win a $200 gift card to Jeffs Performance Archery (probably for new arrows lol!)

Zombie Head - Expect an 80-90 yard shot. $5 for 3 arrows.  Shoot him in the head for an entry.  Prize TBD

 

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 10 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 9am on July 17th!.  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.

 

There will be limited camping allowed on site which you can RSVP when you register.   Blue Mounds State Park and Brigham County Park have camp sites and are within minutes of Tyrol Basin.

To find lodging and to learn more about the event location visit the  Tyrol Basin website.

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, but you should still plan to bring your own water and snacks while out on the course.

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.
