Long Range Hunter
Only 5 spots available for this course.
Saturday, March 24th
2020 Capital Drive
Attendees will learn the variables of the long range equation and the skills required to hunt at ranges average shooters consider beyond ethical. The course will thoroughly cover equipment set up and capabilities, fundamentals of marksmanship, ballistics, and atmospherics. Shooters will learn to quickly set up their firing position, determine wind speed and direction, range estimation, and confidently engage targets at the practical limits of their rifle, caliber and optic combination. For most hunters this is 450-600 yards. Once we have established that confidence with each shooter, we will move back to 700, 800, or further (time permitting) for the fun of it and ultimately end the day with shots at the end of legal light. After this course, students will know their capabilities per their equipment and leave with an understanding how to conduct their own training and be prepared to shoot further for this fall's hunt.
