  • More than 1,400 zombie hunting enthusiasts, including nearly 800 shooters
  • On-site RV parking camping for more than 400 attendees
  • 27 shooting stages for pistol, shotgun and rifle enthusiasts
  • A silencer-equipped shooting stage hosted by Advanced Armament Corp., which demonstrated the capabilities of law enforcement equipment
  • A “Zombie Safari” course that allowed participants to shoot zombie targets with a shotgun from a moving vehicle
  • Prizes and giveaways worth more than $100,000 from event sponsors, including Remington, Bushmaster, Marlin, Para-USA, Advanced Armament Corp., EOTech, NightForce, Luminox and Foxpro.

    Zombie Safari was a combination pistol/rifle stage, no shotgun. Also worth noting is the silencer stage had full autos too.
