Hunter Degree Course in English
Theory and shooting (3 days)

This is the course for those who wants to get a complete hunting diploma course including theory and shooting. After completing the course, you have the hunting certificate in your hand.

The course contains a general orientation section about game, nature and wildlife, and presentation of the whole theory part (fauna, ecology, weapons handling, weapons safety, tracking, etc.) as well as training with shotgun and rifle. The theoretical and practical elements of the course are conducted on Varpsund shooting range. All examinations are carried out on the Roslagens Jaktskytteklubb, North of Norrtälje.

Experienced, English speaking instructors are with you throughout the course, so there is plenty of room for discussion during the course. We have the practical training facilities to ourselves, which gives a lot of time on the shooting ranges without stress or unnecessary waiting.
