Family Learn to Shoot and Fish is a joint Learn to Shoot and Family Learn to Fish workshop.

Learn to Shoot workshops are designed to teach participants basic shooting techniques and fundamentals for rifles, shotguns, and archery equipment. The Learn to Shoot portion of the workshop is tailored to new shooters or those interested in learning about recreational shooting.

During the Learn to Shoot workshop, participants will become familiar with:

  • Basic firearm and archery safety
  • Shooting techniques
  • Shot placement
  • Basic firearm maintenance

The Learn to Fish workshop will include classroom instruction on general fish biology and basic fishing skills. Families will then fish for panfish at Tamarack Lake.

All firearms, ammunition, and archery equipment will be provided. All fishing equipment and bait will also be provided.

The shooting portion of the workshop will be outside on the shooting range. Please dress accordingly; long pants are recommended and eye and ear protection is required.
