Have you ever considered bowhunting but don’t know where to start? In this beginner-level two day workshop, you’ll learn how to shoot a compound hunting bow from trained ODFW instructors. Day one, you’ll get fast-paced and hands-on training in basics of archery fundamentals, equipment, and theory. We provide all equipment, so just bring yourself, a lunch, and a good attitude. This workshop is beginner level and designed for people with little to no archery experience.
On day two, we provide the “next steps” through our Bowhunter Skills workshop. This class is available to people with some archery experience or anyone who has attended our Archery Skills Workshop. During the Bowhunter Skills class participants will be placed in a variety of hunting scenarios on a 3D archery course to better understand how to make ethical (and hopefully successful) decisions in the field.
