Shoot with confidence! EatWild is offering a one day live fire shooting workshop at The Port Coquitlam & District Hunting & Fishing Club. This will be a hands on and practical opportunity for you build your knowledge and skills to become a confident shooter.

What folks are saying about the EatWild Shooting Skills Workshop
"I come from a family of hunters but was never shown how to hunt. So I’ve had the interest for a long time. The EatWild crew is fantastic at explaining things and walking you through each step so you understand how to properly handle and shoot a rifle SAFELY. They also take the time to explain the difference between an ethical and unethical hunt. Being able to fire different calibres really gives you a good feel for what type of rifle best suites you. I hope to see them in the future for other courses. They provide a very friendly, social and educational experience. I would recommend this course to anyone who has no or very little rifle experience."
"I attended the Shooting Skills workshop with the intention of selecting a rifle to purchase. My friends had strongly recommended the 30-06 and I was so glad to try one at the range as I realized I was not comfortable with that selection. Instead, Dylan had us try the .243 and .308 and I found the .308 was the rifle I wanted to have. Having the ability to try out the firearms from the various positions really gave me a chance to see what I could handle and what would be best for me when trying to hunt ethically vs shooting at targets."
“Great opportunity for a new hunter to learn shooting skills and gain confidence with a rifle in a supportive environment.”
“The workshop was a lot of fun, I had never shot a gun before and left feeling way more confident about handling a rifle.”
