Expert Tips

Warm Up

For paid participants, the practice range will be available all day to warm up, dial in your bow or try out new gear.

Water & Snacks

Between the altitude, weather and your physical exertion, you will get dehydrated more quickly than expected. Please make sure to bring plenty of water. It is going to be a long, strenuous day, so make sure that you have enough nutrients in your pack so that you can stay strong all day.

Weather

Weather is unpredictable, make sure you check the weather and are prepared.

Equipment

Make sure your bow is in working condition. There will be a “warm up” area and we’ll have local pro shops that can help you. But, you may want to pack an Allen wrench in your day pack.
