This Year's Skills Course Explained...Sort Of

This Year's Skills Course Explained...Sort Of

By: John Davis

The Skills course will require competitors to complete four tasks that are unknown until the day of competition. Two minutes is the desired average, so look for each task to take around 30 seconds to complete. The course will change at each of the Regional sites, so if you plan on doing some recon, don’t expect the skills to be the same.

Generally, each course will have one skill from hunting, fishing, survival, and camping. To shake things up, the crew may make the course with double of one and none of another. Can’t let y’all get too comfortable!

I don’t want to give away too much so no specifics, but if you’re that guy (or gal) who can tie a Bimini twist as easily as you set decoys to wind direction, you will smash this course.

Grapevine,TX. I havent heard if it is going to be a packed house or not. Where ever you plane to go try to be early. From last year it got buzy quick and tends to get a little crazy. It starts about 9am. I try to get there around 8:30 so I can get an idea on what is goin to take place. Hopefully it will not be as windy as last year. GOOD LUCK.

It sure has been quiet on here. I guess everyone has been out practicing. I have been doin that myself. you wouldn`t believe what me and my brother have been doin to get ready. Everything from knotts to casting at targets and having the other stand in front of it and hitting the target. Archery will be fun and shooting will be interesting. I wish we could get this goin. Can`t wait for regionals.
