This unique lesson combines the fundamentals of USA Archery form, equipment, and technique with additional time on topics like camouflage, tracking, and practice techniques. You will learn the basics of archery range safety, archery equipment selection, how to use proper shooting technique with correct body alignment and form, and have fun asking questions. Additional lessons cover more content from the Explorer Bowhunting program such as field dressing, habitats, and scents. EQUIPMENT / MATERIALS: All needed archery rental equipment, your choice of recurve or compound bow, ais provided for your personal use in this lesson. STUDENTS TO PROVIDE: A signed archery waiver (we provide) and close toed shoes like sneakers. If you have your own bowhunting equipment please bring it. LICENSES / PERMITS: This class does NOT include any hunting or fishing licenses or tags.

State law also requires a 40 pound minimum draw weight bow for bowhunting (125 draw weight on a crossbow). That is the size of bow that you will need to train up to be able to use.
