    Registration for the 2012 Vortex Extreme is now open

    It’s going to be physically challenging
    and it will test your long-range shooting skills

    If long-range precision shooting in real-world hunting scenarios worked into a physically challenging format is something that peaks your interest, the Vortex Extreme is your event.

    Held at the Spirit Ridge Rifle Golf long range shooting facility in Tremonton, Utah July 20-21,
    the Vortex Extreme requires each team of two to navigate the 7-mile course on foot carrying everything needed to successfully engage targets out to 1,000 yards. Final scores are a compilation of how well each team shoots and how long it takes them to complete the course.

    50 teams of two. Up to 26 shots each. Nearly all shots will be from natural shooting positions adding to the realism of each scenario. Scores will be based on course time and how well each team shoots. Strong legs and lungs recommended.

    If you can hack it to pack it, you can bring it. Participants must carry everything needed to effectively shoot and complete the course. Each person must carry their own rifle. Other kit can be shared.

    Recommended Gear:
    Rifle, ammunition, optics, rangefinder, shooting sticks, backpack, extra water, energy snacks, sun screen, good footwear, hat, eye protection, hearing protection and anything else needed.
