Have you ever considered bowhunting but don’t know where to start? In this beginner-level 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 April 25th, we are offering a “next step” class in Bowhunter Skills. This class is available to people with some archery experience or anyone who has attended our Archery Skills Workshop. During the Bowhunter Skills workshop 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. This workshop can also fulfill the Bowhunter Education field day for participants who have completed the Bowhunter Education online course. You will be required to pass a written test and competency shoot to receive your Bowhunter Education certification.
Contact the event organizer if you have any questions about these classes.
