After the scouting, planning, hiking, glassing, and incredible amount of patience have paid off and the animal you've worked so hard to outsmart finally comes into view, are you and your gear up to the task of making an effective and ethical shot? A properly zeroed riflescope, fundamental understanding of marksmanship, practice with your equipment in unique positional shooting scenarios you may face in the field, and an understanding of external and terminal ballistics all come in to play in that pivotal moment. Our Hunter Marksmanship course is designed to make sure none of these things are a lingering question mark in your head when you press the trigger. A hunter who is confident in themselves and their shooting equipment will have greater success, place ethical shots on game, and ultimately have more enjoyable experiences in the field. We look forward to being a part of your hunting season!
