Success leading to Success...

Our instructors have a ton of experience no matter if it is Hunting or Target Shooting at local, provincial or international level. They all of a wealth of knowledge and are more then willing to pass as much of it along as they can. All of our instructors are still active hunters and/or target shooters and can help not only with shooting form and technique but also what equipment to purchase and what would work best for your situation.

What are the shooting sports?

Shooting sports are a competitive group of sports involving tests of proficiency using various types of bows and firearms.

Hunting is also a shooting sport, and indeed shooting live pheasants was an Olympic event (albeit only once, in 1900).
