This adventure is for experienced shooters with good eyesight. Game hunters will have an advantage with this one. Boomers range from 25 yards to 200 yards away and will require the shooter be able to find them in the brush, trees and grass. Your scoped deer rifle and the skills to use it will come in handy. You must be in at least fair shape -- you will walk about 1/2 mile up and down moderate hills.
Overview of the adventure
The adventure starts at 9:00 AM with a 15 minute review of the safety rules. At 9:15 the first shooter will walk down a primitive road with his or her unloaded rifle into a wooded area with your Boomershoot Adventure guide. At various points along the path there will be an area marked off on the ground as a 'shooting box'. Some shooting boxes will have a bench in them, others will have nothing. Prior to stepping into the box you will load your rifle and prepare to shoot. When you indicate you are ready a buzzer will go off -- this is the signal to step into the box and shoot boomers visible from the box. There will be from 5 to 10 visible from each shooting box. The time from the beginning of the buzzer to the last shot is recorded. Any missed or unseen boomers are pointed out to the shooter and 15 seconds are added to his or her time. The shooter is allowed to finish off any remaining boomers before unloading and proceeding to the next shooting box. At about 20 minute intervals a subsequent Boomer Stalker begins the walk down the path after the previous shooter has moved on and the detonated boomers have been replaced. Each stalk takes a shooter about 45 minutes. After a shooter finishes a stalk he or she may attend the stalk of his or her teammates -- assuming they give you permission.
The entire team will be finished by about 11:30 and the adventure wraps up with 30 minutes of Boomershoot history and discussion.
