“Long range” is a phrase that is highly subjective and fiercely debated amongst the hunting community as a whole. We all know there’s plenty of folks out there attempting shots on game that they truly shouldn’t be. Our Precision Hunter course is here to help you clearly define your hunting limitations, and then to push them to a new level that instils confidence, knowledge and experience in both your equipment and your own perceived accuracy potential.

In this class you will learn what really matters when it comes to making high-consequence shots on live targets under both time constraints and widely varying conditions. You will also learn how to modernise or modify your equipment to make you a more effective and humane hunter.

You will come away from this course with a newfound respect for the capabilities of your equipment and yourself during your next hunting season.

This course focuses on developing a solid foundation of skills that will set you up for success on your journey to becoming a modern day precision rifleman.

We start with the basics as we teach you about the finer points of your rifle, optic and ammunition, and how they work together to produce the precise results you’re looking for. This includes rifle and scope setup which is tailored to your own shooting style, as well as techniques on how to tune your rifle/develop a cartridge load to ensure the most precise shooting.

You’ll then dive deep into the fundamentals of marksmanship, teaching you how to shoot your rifle to both its and your own capabilities.

The Advanced Precision Rifle course is for the shooter who is confident in their ability to consistently employ all fundamentals naturally, proving themselves ready to take the next step. The difference between a novice shooter and an advanced shooter is often as simple as correct fundamental application coupled with a comprehensive understanding of the full theoretical spectrum of long distance shooting and ballistics.

This advanced long range rifle course will focus on adding more tasks and problems for the conscious mind to solve while muscle memory takes care of the rest. We will discuss all the industry buzz-words and variables that are relevant to calculating long distance shooting solutions, and also what variables are often misconceived or made up; only clouding the mind. In addition, we dive deep into the modern tactical rifle scope and teach all of its wonderful features and capabilities, including holdovers, multiple target engagements, unknown distance shoots, and more.

Next, we’ll give you an exposure to how to read the largest variable in long range shooting, the wind, and how to make accurate adjustments when you don’t get it right. By the end of this course you will know where your strengths and weaknesses lie and which areas require further training.
