This match is an extreme test of practical field rifle shooting and its supporting activities. Two-man teams will be required to navigate rugged desert terrain, recognize, locate, range, and engage challenging rifle targets from compromised shooting positions, communicate with their partner and the range officer (RO), and do it under time constraints. This will be a physically-demanding match!
The THUNDER BEAST TEAM CHALLENGE is a non-standard contest that examines practical rifle skills, including target recognition, range estimation, wind doping, trail skills, and marksmanship. The competition is designed to test a 2-man team's skills shooting rifle and carbine to their effective ranges at practical targets in the natural terrain using what gear they can carry.
