Our course is a basic introduction in the proper handling of firearms and understanding of hunting etiquette and hunting laws.  Parents are encouraged to continue their child’s development of the safe and responsible skills, knowledge, and attitudes discussed and taught in this course.

As always, each class will be concentrating on hands-on education, with a large array of firearms in the class each week.  We have found this makes each class exciting, yet highly educational for each student.
