Wisconsin competition opportunities

I think I may like to hone my capabilities of shooting under pressure and under field conditions. What is available in Wisconsin for me and my 16 pound hunting rifle with bipod and brake?

    Len please post any info you get. I was planning to go to Iowa this summer and watch. Closest place I have found with a 1000 yard range. My home range only goes to 750.

    Len & Budman,
    I don't know how much of a trip it would be but next year I jsut recieved the request from the Varmint Hunters Assoc to host IBS 600yd BR matches next year in Pierre, SD. These matches use the same equipment rules as 1000yd BR and fire (4) 5 shot groups at 600yd that are agg'd together to determine the winner.
    Maybe we'll see you in SD or Iowa next year sometime. The IBS 1000yd Nationals are going to he hosted by the Iowa club in 2005 so I'll definetly be there over the Labor Day weekend.

    Steve

    Len there is a 1000 yd range just outside of Lodi Wi.. (north of Madison) I've heard they have some matches there, but I don't know what type or if they are open to the public. I haven't looked into it that far yet as I'm not ready for 1k yet. I think it's called Winnequa or something close to that.
