June 26-30th, 2021 Backcountry Hunter Course 2 (8 slots left)

In this course you will cover a mountain of information (pun intended) during the 5 days you’ll spend with us.  We’ll start off with two days on the rifle range, learning the necessary skills you’ll need to make a responsible and ethical shot under austere conditions, with the end state goal of you having a solid grasp of your capabilities, and your limitations with your rifle.  Moving into the backcountry, you’ll put on your pack and spend three days in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest simulating a typical backcountry hunt. There you’ll learn about gear, how to pack your pack, fit your pack, land navigation, locating game, and taking live-fire shots under real-world conditions.
