This year Wapiti Bowmen will host Five(5) shoots. The trails change from shoot to shoot so each shoot is new and different.
Wet & Wild 3-D Shoot
March 10-11, 2018
Although winter weather has usually started to subside for the season, Wapiti's second 3-D shoot of the season can often be a "tester", too! Successful shooters must be able to concentrate on making a good shot under trying conditions and challenging target placements. A hot Wapiti burger or Wapiti dog meal from the cook shack is usually a welcome break during or at the end of a day's shooting!
Cinco de Arrow 3-D Shoot
May 5-6, 2018
This may be Wapiti's best 3-D trail shoot of the season if past history holds true! The site conditions are prime and weather is usually pleasant. Shots often begin to stretch out as trails are set up to be even more challenging as hunting seasons approach. While the roaring fire may not be necessary any longer, the comaraderie around it is still the best!
Bonanza Safari Shoot
June 16-17, 2018
What can be better than a Safari shoot in early summer at Wapiti's Beaver Creek range? The weather is warm, summer foliage is fresh and green, and the shooting is out-standing! The trails are set up to challenge even the best shooters although the needs of beginning shooters are considered, too. Registration form link on Newsletter page.
Wapiti Warm-up Field Shoot
July 7, 2018
This will be an NFAA target shoot to warm up for the State Field. It will be a money shoot also which you can participate if you want. This is new for Wapiti Bowmen. Come and warm up & enjoy. Registration form link on Newsletter page.
Mel Schmidt Memorial 3-D Shoot
August 18-19, 2018
Wapiti's last shoot of the 3-D trail shoot season, just a week before the opening of archery deer and elk season, is a great chance to fine tune both the shooter and his or her hunting gear! Shots are often the longest and/or most difficult of Wapiti's 3-D season so shooters are challenged to prove their readiness for the hunting season. A cook shack meal of Harold McCraven's famous barbequed chicken is a highlight of Wapiti's 3-D season for many!
