Effective Wingshooting Workshops

What you'll learn

  • Improving shotgun skills
  • Pattern-testing procedures
  • Best loads and choke combinations for waterfowl or upland gamebird hunting
  • Estimating range and distance
  • Game recovery strategies
  • Increasing harvest rates
  • Benefits of nontoxic shot
  • Matching nontoxic shot shells with appropriate shotguns and chokes.

Free steel practice shot and clay targets provided

We provide free 12- and 20-gauge nontoxic practice ammunition to participants. Besides being nontoxic, steel shot is the cheapest nontoxic shot, (many times cheaper than even lead), holds the tightest patterns and has the shortest shot strings. If you can learn to shoot steel shot effectively, you can be more effective with any other shot. We provide free clay targets, too.

What to bring

You must have some understanding of waterfowl or upland game bird hunting, shotgun shooting, chokes and ammunition.
Bring the following:

  • Your shotgun
  • Choke tubes (if applicable)
  • Any other nontoxic shotgun ammunition you'd like to pattern test
  • Eye and ear protection
  • Stool or chair
  • Snack, lunch and beverage.
