Our Extended Range Game Harvest (ERGH) course teaches those with a passion for big game hunting to get the most performance out of themselves and their hunting rifle. Through in-depth instruction on the fundamentals of marksmanship, alternate firing positions, ballistics, basic wind reading and live fire hunting scenarios, we will help you establish your own Ethical Range Limit (ERL). This course is a way for you to hone your rifle hunting skills and to improve your harvest odds on that trophy animal that you have invested sweat, time and money to pursue.

Our ERGH class is a three-day course taught by our military qualified snipers and competitive shooters who are also avid hunters and outdoorsman. You will receive a sniper school house level of instruction on advanced precision marksmanship, to include; data collection, ballistic technology integration, advanced scope utilization, range estimation, wind reading, shooter / spotter relationship, spotter fundamentals, hunter focused positional shooting techniques, advanced fundamentals of marksmanship, and numerous other applicable topics. With a 1 to 2 instructor to student ratio, and class sizes limited to 6 students, you are guaranteed to get the over the shoulder level of instruction you would expect. We are confident you will leave our course with the ability to successfully make precision hits on vital area sized targets out to 600+ yards. We promise that by the end of the course you will understand the capabilities of yourself and your equipment as it relates to the ethical engagement of game animals.

After a half day of classroom style instruction, we move directly to the range and confirm zero, and begin collecting engagement data out to 800 yards, and beyond if you desire. You will train utilizing our wide array of steel targets, and receive instant feed-back from the ring of the steel, and the critique of our instructors. We will the focus on positional shooting and the use of support aides to achieve hits on vital sized targets at extended ranges. The culminating event of this training is a practical based exercise where you will apply all lessons learned through challenging live fire hunting scenarios. Utilizing the “train as you fight” mentality of the military, our instructors will put you and your gear to the test on a demanding hunting scenario based live fire where you will engage foam deer decoys that we have placed steel plates in the vital zone to better indicate hits. You will train as you hunt, thus ensuring you have experienced and conquered extended range hunting scenarios prior to putting your crosshairs on a real-world big game animal. We consider this training the best insurance policy a trophy game hunter can have.
