About the Course
Question: “Is a firearm the best tool to stop a bear attack?” The answer may surprise you! A firearm is one tool, but a tool of last resort. The are other effective alternatives, which can be used while enjoying the Montana wilderness, to reduce the chance of a bear attack.
Our instruction will include: the use of and practice with BEAR Spray (inert), identifying environments where bears may frequent, provide an understanding of black and grizzly bear behavior, identify the types of attacks and likely causes, learn to avoid and employ non-lethal bear deterrents and basic First Aid.
You may take either a half day class, or continue through the full day with firearm instruction included in the second half of the day. IF YOU CHOOSE THE FULL DAY CLASS, BE SURE TO SIGN UP FOR A FULL DAY, NOT A HALF DAY. The FIRST HALF will be covering the above topics WITHOUT the use of a firearm. The SECOND HALF of the course will concentrate on firearms safety training, effective deployment of firearms through live-fire drawing, shooting, clearing and reloading range drills.
