Looks like its happening this year. I was bummed out that it got canceled last year. I went in 2019 and it was awesome. Anyone going? Looking for good place to camp with the rv close to the natural bridge caverns. Any ideas?

I want to go this year but will be at work. Looking at the option of going to one of the other dates and making a family vacation out of it.

I was signed up for the 2019 shoot but wasn’t able to make.

bummer, itís a good time. I would like to go to one in Utah. I went to mountain archery fest last year in Durango and it was a blast.
Since they canceled last year, they gave me early registration and a whole $15 off

Planning to go also .. Taking the rv to a park on canyon lake, never camped there though so we will see. Google says it's about a 25 min drive.

10 of us at my office went in 19 and it was great. Going again this year. Think we did the Sitka course most shots were 50-100 yds. Great stuff. Wives went last year so stayed on the riverwalk.

Check out the lazy L and L at Canyon lake. Itís a nice rv park and it should be less than a 30 minute drive to Natural Bridge Caverns.

I am going to try and make it this year. It will be a first time for me.

If you shoot the courses all weekend and donít lose an arrow, hats off to you. Heck Iíve broke some on perfect shots when they blew through the target and hit a rock behind it.

Hunting arrows are expensive. I always shoot cheapie arrows for the TAC. Hurts a lot less losing a cheap arrow. Even the local archery shop guys shoot cheap arrows for this event.

I run the same setup I use for hunting. Lighted nocks and all. Itís the best hunting practice that you will get. Odd angles, not flat footing, have to kneel on a few. You will really learn the trajectory of your arrow. I did it in 2019, shot 3 courses a day for 3 days, I broke 7 arrows and lost 2. Stuff happens.

Ive been breaking an arrow almost each time I bring my bow out from random occurrences. Just had an insert pull out in my target. Couldn't locate it and pull it out. Managed to find it about an hour later with another arrow and shattered it...
