Precision Shooting Program for Hunting

Precision Shooting Program for Hunting

Hunter Marksman Basics

great hunter knows how to use their equipment proficiently and sets standards well above the necessary. A good hunter has practiced and knows their limits. A terrible hunter establishes a 100-yard zero and calls it good. 

This course is designed to educate hunters on every bit of knowledge about the rifle they could possibly need for hunting. This course is not an in-depth long-range shooting course designed to teach you to hit 1000-yard vital shots on the regular. This course has a maximum range of 600 yards and teaches hunters how to effectively hit vital-sized targets with confidence regardless of equipment.

Hunting Course Outline

  • The course will start with accuracy training. Way too many hunters have had missed or bad shots on an animal leading to an unethical kill. The training day will start with pistol training to teach the fundamental principles of shooting at a precision level. We will then take those learned principles and apply them to rifle shooting. Pistol training is very effective and economical for teaching these fundamental principles.
