Area residents are invited to sign up now to learn the basics of shooting shotguns from NRA-certified instructors.

Idaho Fish and Game staff along with NRA certified instructors will be teaching a Successful Shotgunning workshop on Dec. 3 at the Farragut Shooting Range Center in Athol.

The class is geared toward new or potential shotgun owners with little or no experience with shotguns or those considering a first time shotgun purchase.

There are only 20 spots available in the class, T.J. Ross, regional communications manager, said.

The spots will fill quickly, so sign up now! Registration is required and can be completed at register-ed.com/events/view/186923.

The cost of the class is $20, which covers personalized instruction from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Payment can be made online or by cash or check at the door. All participants must be 16 years or older to participate.

The class will cover shotgun types, terms and definitions, safe handling, proper stance, sight alignment, shooting and range rules, live fire, and more.

This class is one of the new “Hunting and Shooting Sport Skills” classes being offered across the state, Ross said.

Classes vary widely, but can include field dressing and skinning, tracking and scent, sighting in a rifle and much more. Check here for current and future class offerings.

"At the end of the day, we want you to feel equipped and be successful in your hunting and shooting endeavors," Ross said.
