This program is designed for anyone who is interested in improving their Bear Awareness, Hazing and Defensive skills. This class is excellent for those working or exploring in Bear Country.
We stress situational awareness and conflict avoidance whenever possible. The program starts with a close look at bears natural behavior, body language and biology. We cover specific threats which require “hazing” and look at common deterrent techniques and equipment. We then address the implications and techniques for the lethal defense of life and property. Students learn ballistic profiles of weapons typically carried and discuss recommendations for specific situation and use. The afternoon is spent at a local shooting range detailing weapons safety and coaching students on improving shooting proficiency with both stationary and “moving” targets.
This is the “best” basic program in Alaska for both information and experience.
