This is a low round count course that covers the practical field aspects of the precision rifle. The course will cover topics to include: Basic Medical, What to carry and how to pack your rucksack, Fundamentals of camouflage, Observation Drills, Land Navigation, Hide selection and building, Sketching/Reporting & Basic Patrolling techniques and formations.
The course will incrementally teach and challenge you, sharpening and honing your field skills. It will culminate with a live fire scenario, which will put all of your newly learned skills to the test!
This is really a great class that goes beyond shooting.

This is a great class with great instructors of course, but it will be what you make of it. There is a good bit of instruction here on land nav., so dust off the ole' FM 21-26 and get familiar with MGRS/UTM. Knowing pace counts, map reading, route selection will help you and your class move on to the other stuff. Target detection and fundamentals of camouflage are also covered, so make sure your concealment garments are squared away. Oh yeah it's Colorado, get hydrated before showing up.
Have fun and get in touch with your inner mongrel.
