The Apprentice Hunter curriculum includes marksmanship, archery, shotgun shooting, field dressing, gun care and cleaning, orienteering skills, and a host of other subjects. Groups of 12Â¿Â¿Â¿15 students learn to build emergency shelters and spend one night sleeping out in the open. In the classroom, they study wildlife management and the hunting heritage and have the opportunity to complete a hunter-safety course. The hunt, however, is the highlight of the week at camp. Although most of the campers have hunted before, many have never shot a centerfire, much less a deer. Yet thanks to good guides, thorough training, and top-notch equipment (Dakota rifles and Kahles optics), nearly every camper who wants to hunt takes an animal.
