Advanced Marksmanship for Deer Stalkers

Modern hunting rifles, ammunition and sighting systems are, in most cases, generally capable of delivering much greater accuracy than their owners.  In most cases, the causes of inconsistent shooting lie with the user.

This course teaches delegates to understand the characteristics of rifles and ammunition in the context of deer control, and consolidates the theoretical instruction in the field on simulated deer targets at moderate to extended ranges.

It also teaches the specialist techniques needed to transform you from being a moderate shot, to an outstanding one.

Who is this for?

Advanced Marksmanship for Deer Stalkers is for those who wish to achieve the best results from their firearms, and the best from themselves.  The course teaches the key techniques that will ensure that your shot is both precise and effective at a variety of ranges, and from varying positions.
