Gun Talk had a chance to run up to Wyoming to film the first annual Sig Sauer Hunter Games. The event was highly successful, pitting top competitors in a variety of fields in a long-range shooting competition. This has to be one of the most unique events I’ve covered in my time in the shooting industry. ~ KJ
The inaugural SIG SAUER Hunter Games hosted at Queen Mountain Guest Ranch in Evanston, Wyoming, June 13 – 15.
“The SIG SAUER Hunter Games was a first of its kind event and overall competitive experience that challenged hunters’ shooting, glassing, and physical abilities, and was designed to showcase the full capabilities of SIG SAUER’s hunting products including the CROSS bolt-action rifle, SIG SAUER Electro-Optics, and SIG SAUER Ammunition,” said Tom Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Vice President, SIG SAUER, Inc. “The field of competitors consisted of ten teams of three comprised of one professional guide and two celebrity competitors with a variety of backgrounds and experience to compete against each other for two days traversing the rugged Wyoming Mountains, on a course of fire that started at 8,000 ft., elevated above 9,000 ft. and engaging targets at various distances.”
SIG SAUER congratulates Team Ramshorn consisting of Professional Guide Trent Fisher of Born and Raised Outdoors, Scotty Lago, and Justin Rackley for earning the hard-fought title and becoming the first-ever champion of the SIG SAUER Hunter Games.
