COURSES

Unknown Distance

Duration 

You’ve saved your money for the big hunt. You’ve gotten the best equipment. You’ve trained, documented and trained some more. The time has come to get that prize game animal. You see the specimen of a lifetime! You grab your laser range finder….”Where is it? I thought I brought it! What, no batteries?” If only you knew the art of range estimation! 

This class is intended for the Intermediate or Advanced level scoped-rifle shooter to challenge him or herself on targets at distances that must be determined using the skills of measuring and milling.

Please ensure you have read through the class description and fully understand our prerequisites before registering.
