Welcome to the marksman challenges. These are your opportunity to take action and practice the things that we talk about here at The Everyday Marksman. At the end of the day, you can read a lot about marksmanship, survival, mindset, and gear, but knowing isn’t the same thing as doing.
Each marksman challenge focuses on a single topic area. The completion criteria for each challenge is different, and there are varying levels of proof requird to complete the challenge. Additionally, each challenge has multiple levels of difficulty. If you complete a challenge, then you earn the associated badge, which appears on your profile within the community forum.
You can complete any challenge at any time, unless it says otherwise. Think of this a bit like Boy Scout merit badges. The more you complete and the more skills you master, the more capable a citizen you become.
I suggest starting off with the Go-Getter challenge, which focuses on goal setting and then start working your way through.
The July 2019 Marksman Challenge is upon us. Last month the focus was on the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship, and this month we pivot to fitness. The theme of the month is rucking. So dust off your pack and let’s get to work.
This is the very first of the monthly Marksman Challenges. This is not a competition, but a way to test your own abilities and improve. The first challenge is all about the fundamentals of marksmanship.
