WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
In our Foundations course, we focus on building your skills and knowledge base. Learning about the long-range shooting system, you’ll receive an in-depth presentation on the components and setup needed to successfully engage targets at long-range with accuracy and precision. You’ll come away with a complete understanding of marksmanship fundamentals.
We discuss all the art and science of long range shooting, with the ultimate goal of preparing you for your hunt following the class. The longer days allow us to spend more time on the range conducting than in the classroom! Expect to come out of the class a more confident and capable hunter!
I wanted to thank you for the superb Level 1 and 2 classes I attended. Where this was not a result of “1,000 yards right out of the box”, it was a result of you making me confident in superb equipment and taking a shot at 594 yards with a 40 degree angle starting at a 200 foot elevation, 5 MPH left to right wind and 2 degrees Fahrenheit in 4 feet of snow or all translated to 5.2 MOA as instructed by my G-7 range finder. One-shot, all done.
I was intrigued by but slightly hesitant about the concept of long range hunting and decided to attend the Level 1 Course and familiarize myself with the techniques and equipment Gunwerks has become well known for. First and foremost, the educational material itself is worth every penny. But when we hit the range and I started nailing the 600 yard bulls-eye within a few shots and the 840 yard target became a gimme within less than an hour of putting their techniques and equipment to work I can officially say I was convinced. This course is absolutely necessary for anyone looking to hone their bench shooting techniques and navigate the murky waters of long range optics and firearms. These guys are as legit as they come!
