Hornady® Hosts 2021 Zombies in the Heartland 3-Gun Match

Grand Island, NE — Nearly 400 zombie hunters armed with handguns, shotguns and rifles converged in Grand Island, Nebraska, June 4-6, 2021 to battle the “undead” during the 9th annual, Zombies in the Heartland 3-Gun Match hosted by Hornady® and the Heartland Public Shooting Park.

Shooters from 20 different states tested their talent in the match that featured 10 stages. Specially developed reactive zombie targets kept shooters engaged and entertained. Participants shot from a suspended motorcycle, through a burned-out auto yard and while sitting in a parked pickup truck where shooters were required to turn the wheel to see targets.

The top shooters in each class were:

  • Open: Jon Wiedell, 1st overall
  • Tactical: Riley Kropff, 2nd overall
  • Amateur: Jeremiah Ochsner
  • PCC: Kelly Neal
  • Lady: Dakota Overland
  • Junior: Logan Toland
  • Senior: Tony Holmes
  • Super Senior: Jerry Miculek, 3rd overall

“The Zombie Match would simply not be possible without the help of our amazing volunteers” said Steve Hornady, President. “In addition, all of the sponsors that donate to this match – thank you. We had a prize table valued at $130,000 this year, that’s incredible,” Hornady added.
