Whether working or playing in the wilderness, this course is a must.  Predators can be a real threat especially to the sick, injured, the young and for dogs that may accompany humans in the wild.  Most remote cabins, retreats/lodges and workers have non-lethal and lethal ways of protecting themselves from agressive animals. These non-lethal and lethal tools are stored on hand. There is a reason for this, it pays to be prepared. This course is mainly hands on and outdoors, so dress accordingly and bring extra clothes.

  • Most popular gauge shotguns of the north
  • Most popular long gun calibers in the north
  • Cover three guns with one
