Hunter Preparation Weekend | Experience

The Hunter Preparation Course is designed to take beginners, seasoned outdoorsmen, and everyone in between to the next level. You will join an incredible group of instructors brought together to stay with you at a breathtaking ranch in Tabiona, Utah, learning and breaking bread with one another inside the lodge. This weekend's course will prepare you for a hunting experience from start to finish, including securing the proper hunting tag, scouting your hunting area for game, using all the necessary equipment, field dressing the animal, and processing the game to be table-ready. In addition to covering all these hunting skills, we will also address essential outdoor skills such as navigation, survival, medical issues, and more.

Join our cadre along with fellow learners, make new friends, and grow your hunting community. Whether you have been hunting for years or are just starting out, you will leave the weekend with upgraded capabilities ready for your next, or first, hunting experience. You will stay in the lodge and all meals will be provided while at the ranch.
