Hunting Rifle

 

Our hunting rifle course will take you through everything from selecting the proper rifle and caliber to the humane harvesting and care of your game animal.

 

The 2-day Hunting Rifle class is considered “mission specific” inasmuch as it designed completely around the safe, effective and ethical harvesting of game animals. It is not a “recreational” shooting class that has been renamed to attract hunters although there will be some cross-over of information with Precision Rifle. It is specifically designed for hunting animals whether it be prairie dogs or grizzly bears or anything in between.

We will help you make the right choice when it comes to equipment and explain to you why we feel it will work for you. We’ll spend time dispelling many hunting and shooting myths and we’ll give you some advice in caring for the animal after the kill.
