The Heartland Public Shooting Park allows use of golf carts, ATV’s, club cars and similar vehicles on site. Individuals can rent two seat golf carts from the Heartland Public Shooting Park for a fee of $50 per day. There are no half day rentals. Contact the Heartland Public Shooting Park (308.385.5048) directly if you are interested in renting a golfcart for the week. The request must be made by May 6, 2016 to guarantee availability. Operators of all vehicles, including privately owned, at the Heartland Public Shooting Park must be 18 years of age or older and hold a valid driver’s license. Violation of this rule is grounds for disqualification for any individual or team involved.

No golf carts, ATV’s, club cars or similar vehicles will be allowed on the 3D and field archery ranges during competition this year.

Nebraska will be using the Megalink Target System for two of this year’s Air Rifle events and one Air Pistol event. The Orion scoring system will be used to score the Air Pistol Single Shot - Rapid Fire event.

The Air Pistol, Single Shot – Rapid Fire, a new event this, will be using a turning target system this year. Be sure to read the “Procedure” section in the synopsis.

All shotguns used by contestants must be equipped, fitted and utilized (i.e. shell catcher) so as not to eject empty shells in a manner that substantially disturbs or interferes with other contestants.

To order ammunition (mainly shotshell) ahead of time, contact the G.I. Loan Shop at (308)382-9573 (store) or Darlo Beazley at (308)379-1086 (cell) for specific questions you may have regarding ammunition purchases. All ammunition must pre-ordered by May 1st to guarantee availability of the ammunition by the time of the event.  Darlo has limited access to rimfire ammunition and would recommend competitors to purchase rimfire ammunition from another available source. G.I Loan Shop would accept and hold shipments of ammunition for competitors in this year’s event.

Game Calling has been included in the Wildlife Identification and Management section of the Hunting Skills event.

There will be an Air Rifle competitors meeting before the start of the tournament.
