Have you ever thought about providing lean, local, hormone-free and drug-free meat for your family? Hunting allows you to do that at a reasonable cost. MUST BE FAMILIAR WITH SHOOTING A RIFLE OR HAVE TAKEN THE MUDDY SQUIRREL INTRODUCTION TO RIFLE CLASS. Participants may want to consider starting the Va. Hunter Education Class on-line prior to the class, but that’s not a requirement. The on-line portion of the Va. Hunter Ed Class is offered free at http://homestudy.ihea.com/
Our class features
• Certified Rifle instructors

• individual instruction
​• relaxed, risk-free environment
• bring your own .243 or other caliber hunting rifle or use our .243. If you have your own rifle that’s not .243 caliber, you’ll need to bring your own ammunition (2 boxes of 20)
​.• the knowledge & confidence to get you started in a sport you can participate in for life​ while providing your family with wholesome food
​• Custom opportunities will be available to go hunting with an instructor with the chance to harvest a deer or small game for your family (additional charge, limited times available weekdays during deer season in November/December or other times for small game—squirrel, rabbit, quail).
