Shooting School

After spending hard earned money, for a Western Big Game hunt, the last thing you want is to have a trophy of a lifetime walk away because you were not comfortable with the shot, or worse yet, taking the shot and ending up with a wounded animal.

Our long range classes not only reconfirm shooting basics but teach the fundamentals of proper shooting techniques at extended distances in various shooting positions. More importantly our long range class exposes a shooter’s limitations and the limitations of his or her equipment in the field where it counts, in turn making them a more confident and ethical hunter.

Day of Arrival

Students should plan on arriving to the lodge around 2pm, this will give you time to check in to your room and prepare for the curriculum starting at 3pm. We will break at 6pm for dinner then complete the review after dinner. Please keep in mind this is your only formal class room time. We believe in keeping you on the range, learning from doing and not from lecturing.
