Elk Tips Outdoor Gear, near Deer Lodge, Montana, will host a Montana 3D Archery shoot on July 29th, 2017. The Elk Tips 3D Family 3D Shoot will be held at the Perkins Ranch a few miles out of town. See directions below.
Calling elk in close requires controlling the bull with a call to put him in front of the shooter for a broadside shot. There are several steps to the process of setting up a scenario for shooting elk
Registration for the Elk Tips 3D Shoot will be from 8:00-11:00 a.m. You may also pre-register at ElkTipsOutdoorGear.com: look for the EVENTS tab on the left hand side of the page.
There will be 2 rounds of 25 3D targets, including a bighorn sheep, elk and a zombie! Stakes will be different for each round. This will be a family-freindly event.
The shoot will be in a forested hunting setting on a private ranch! Bonus money shoots will follow the 3D shoot: Iron Shoot, Water Bag Shoot, Distance Shoot. Quality raffle items available.
There will be men, women/youth and cubs shooting stakes. Women with lower poundage bows may shoot from the "youth" stakes, if desired. Youth may shoot from adult stakes. Handmade plaques for the winners of each division. No rangefinders, or binoculars at shooting stakes, if you want to turn in scores for competiton.
Cost will be: Adults $12, Juniors (12-17) $8, Cubs free (11 and under with registered adult). $35 for a family. Lunch/concessions will be available during the shoot.
After the shoot, go to Deer Lodge for the Craft Brew Festival and Cooking on the Clark Fork BBQ contest. Great BBQ and beer will be available into the evening. What could be better than BBQ and craft beer after a great Montana 3D archery shoot! We hope to see you at the shoot and afterward on Main Street in Deer Lodge.
