Extended Range Game Harvest (ERGH) & Tailored Hunt Prep


COURSE DESCRIPTION

Our ERGH course teaches those with a passion for big game hunting to get the most performance out of themselves and their hunting setup. Through in-depth instruction on the fundamentals of marksmanship, data collection, atmospherics, ballistics, range estimation, advanced scope utilization, supported & unsupported alternate firing positions, wind reading, communication and live fire hunt scenarios, we will help you establish an individual Ethical Range Limit (ERL). This course is a way for you to hone your rifle hunting skills and ultimately improve your harvest odds on that trophy animal that you have invested sweat, time and hard-earned capital to pursue.

ERGH class is a typically a two-day course that is most often ran as private training for “hunting buddy” crews and the hardcore DIY hunter types. Taught by our military qualified snipers who are also seasoned rifle hunters and outdoorsman, you will receive “sniper schoolhouse” style instruction on numerous variables of precision marksmanship which incorporates a “train as you hunt” primary learning objective. We are confident you will leave our course with the ability to shoot farther and consistently make precision hits on vital area sized target out to 600 yards and beyond. We promise that by the end of the course you will understand the capabilities and limitations of yourself and your equipment and have an established base line for the ethical engagement of game animals. We consider this training to be the best insurance policy a trophy game hunter can have prior to heading off on that hunt of a lifetime.
