My Experience with Nomad Rifleman
At the beginning of June, my husband and I were invited to the VIP Client Day Nomad Rifleman Experience. (This was a “soft opening for past VIP clients, instructors, business advisors) I was reluctant to go because spending time in the desert all day wasn’t my idea of an ideal Saturday. However, my husband was excited by the thought of getting a one mile hit. So we woke up early Saturday morning, loaded our 4-Wheeler and headed out to a private ranch near Pinedale, Wyoming. This is My Time with the Nomad Rifleman Long Range Rifle Experience.
It was a bit windy when we arrived but there were lots of people there who were ready to have a good time. The wind made the range chillier than I expected. Luckily, someone had an extra coat that I was able to borrow throughout the day to stay warm. Once I was bundled up and comfortable, Hunter and I got set up to start shooting. Shepard dialed us in, explained MOA to us, and we were off! We started shooting at 600 yards. Hunter would spot for me while I was shooting and vice versa. We quickly moved up to the 700 yard and then to the 800-yard target. By lunchtime, we were hitting the 1,100-yard target pretty consistently.
Lunch wasn’t quite ready at that point so Hunter and I unloaded our 4-wheeler to go check our targets. We shot pretty well and fairly consistently on the targets we were aiming at! It was a blast to have some room for some 4-wheeling fun too!
Coach David Bott was on the grill for lunch and it was delicious! He served us some great burgers, complimented by some delicious dutch-oven chicken from Shepard. Range Operations Manager, Tony Molina, also shared some of his elk steaks that he brought. All around, it was some great eating! Hunter and I had brought our own favorite snacks to enjoy throughout the day as well.
(Since this experience, a professional chef has been hired)
Back to It!
After lunch, Hunter and I took on the 1 mile target. The wind had picked up again at that point which made it difficult to hit it spot on. Thank fully, there was a lot of dust surrounding the targets, so we were easily able to tell how far off we were from the target. Finally, Hunter and I both managed to hit the one mile target! It was a thrilling moment and with some extra help from another kind guest, we were able to hit it multiple times before the afternoon was over.
Hunter and I talked about it the whole way home. And we had to drive two hours to get back to our home! We had a lot of fun and are so glad that the Jackson Hole Shooting Experience’s new sister company, Nomad Rifleman, has this great adventure available!
