Congratulations to several of our former students!! One took an elk at 617m. The other took a beautiful moose at 930m. Both made vital area hits for humane kills on the first round.
Long Range Shooting Classes
"I signed up for the Challenger Long Range Rifle Class with Mike and right off the bat quickly realized he knows what he's talking about am very happy with the class and results. Once we got to the site he systematically went through all the gear and factors that need to be considered for a long range shot including my rifle which we found did not have the scope mounted properly. After he properly remounted my scope we started shooting and by the end of the day I was consistently hitting targets over 1000 yrds. I can assure you I won't miss again on the goat of a lifetime." - GT
"I signed up for the Advanced Long Range course this summer, going into it I was expecting a lot and Mike did not disappoint! Once we went thru the safety and produce of things we started shooting and I was way off, Mike zeroed in my rifle and I was hitting the targets in no time. Went into the course shooting a max of 450 yards left the course hitting 1000 yards almost every shot! Mike really knows his stuff and very helpful even after the course making sure you get the right stuff. I highly recommend this course to my friends and anyone who wants to improve there shooting." --CC
"Thank you for putting on the Ultra course (Field-craft Course) last week. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and the weather held out for the most part. Your main instructor has a wealth of knowledge that could only come from the type of real-world experience he has. He presented the material in a way that was easy to understand. I liked the drills and gained a lot of insight on things I need to work on.
This course boosted my confidence and introduced me to a higher level of things to work on." --J

Our main instructor has had such serious assignments as protecting international dignitaries at home and abroad.
Most importantly our instructors have extensive experience training civilians, Law Enforcement, military special and general forces.
Courses are conducted in a fun, relaxed, safe environment and focus on success. Perimeters set out in the class outlines depend on the abilities of the students attending; and if a class progresses quickly you will have the opportunity to shoot out to distances beyond 1000m.

ADVANCED Long Range Hunter CLASS
Aimed at the long range hunter, this is a very extensive course which combines advanced positional shooting with aspects of reloading and ultra distance shooting. 90% of long range shots are NOT made from prone which is usually not practical in the mountains. We teach you the skills you need to know to become competent and confident for that record bull elk or that once in a lifetime sheep hunt.
But you're not a hunter and simply want to improve your shooting or even just learn to shoot long range. This course can easily be tailored to your needs. The basics are the same for all disciplines whether hobbyist, hunter, or competitive shooter.
Our classes are small and personal and you'll receive the guidance you need to be very successful in a short period of time.
Our main instructor was making 1 mile shots with a .308 before there was ever a ballistic computer. Besides a decade of experience our secondary instructor has an extensive knowledge of modern ballistic solvers and long range equipment available to civilians. We will also discuss new methods for solving difficult wind in difficult steep terrain.
-Two day class
- High Angle Shooting level A
- Positional Shooting level A
- Advance theory of ballistics
- Extended Long Range Shooting 1200-2000+ meters
- Unknown Multiple Distance Shoot
- Shooting in challenging terrain.
- Reloading for maximum accuracy.
- Forster Reloading Equipment will be on hand for the reloading portion of these classes.
- 10-11 hour days, not including travel time.
**This class requires a different set of equipment from our Challenger class so a detailed list will be sent out upon booking.
This class is very intensive in subject material so expect two very long but very enjoyable days.
*** We tailor to your needs in this class; so whether you want the class more focused on extreme long range, or reloading, or positional shooting, or hunting, we've got you covered and will customize to your needs.
These classes will ultimately lead to you saving money on bad purchases or missed shots.
Fieldcraft Level 1 -Shooting, Field-Craft, orienteering, stalking, and advanced long range shooting.
Long distance hunters need to know a host of different skills in order to succeed on extremely expensive fly in and international hunts. Being undetected by your prize animal and filling the freezer can be more successful with proper hunting and stalking skills in your tool box. Hunter/sniper stalking skills are available to those that would like to further challenge their bush skills, observation skills, and their Ghillie Suit performance after successfully completely our Advanced course.
Course layout: After an introduction and "classroom" learning period students will move to an area where they will test the skills that they've learned in a fun but challenging environment. This next section of the class consists of self guided orienting to a fixed location where the "shooter teams" will need to identify symbols on signs that are only visible from the preset location. Teams will need to move into position without being spotted by the opposing team with their instructor. (Non- Live fire)
Students will then compete in a course section meant to test their target acquirement, communication, and ranging skills under a timed limit. Students will be brought to a designated spot where they will have a set time limit to acquire targets, draft range cards, find firing solutions, and engage targets out to 1200 meters. Targets will be placed in a variety of spots that may or may not allow for misses to be seen requiring that the shooter and spotter be absolutely correct in everything they do.(Live fire exercise)
Students will also have the opportunity to practice memory games in combination with finding those materials hidden on a range. Expect to get dirty. :)
At the end of the class students will be given their overall course score marked on bushcraft, shooting, targets successfully engaged, memory games, communication errors, etc.. The most successful student will receive an Eberlestock backpack and another prize to be decided later, I.E. TriggerTech, Hog Saddle...
This is a physically and mentally challenging course that will boost your self-confidence and identify weak areas in your shooting.
- Map and compass Navigation
- Advanced Shooter/Spotter Communications
- Bush Craft-making the most of what you have.
- Setting up a Ghillie suit to match terrain
- Stalking and moving undetected in varying terrain
- Identifying targets

- Difficult shooting scenarios that will test your wind reading and fundamentals
