Our Hunter Education program is resuming as of this week. Please check calendar.
Contact: Jim Leonard
Each year approximately 30,000 persons successfully complete a Michigan hunter education course. Successful completion of this class is required for all first-time hunters born on or after January 1, 1960. Hunting is a time-honored tradition in Michigan. It provides citizens with millions of pleasurable hours of wholesome, challenging outdoor recreation. Most hunters develop an intense appreciation for the wilderness, wildlife and a clean environment through their participation in hunting. The challenge of becoming a sportsperson becomes a lifelong quest. Most hunters know the lasting fun of hunting comes only when it is conducted safely and responsibly. Safe hunting begins with hunter education.

Basic Pistol is an NRA program taught by certified NRA instructors for beginners or those whom have not shot for a long time and need a refresher. The course covers criteria for individual selection of a handgun, firearm safety, the basic fundamentals of shooting, and cleaning. Handguns are provided for those without their own. To insure that people select and purchase the right handgun for their use, it is recommended that beginners NOT purchase one until after they have taken the class. Classes are from 8-5 and include live fire. The class is open to club members and the general public.
Class fee - General Public $120
We teach and live the NRA 3 rules for safe gun handling:
1: ALWAYS keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.
2: ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
3: ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

Project Appleseed is an activity of The Revolutionary War Veterans Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to teaching every American our shared heritage and history as well as traditional rifle marksmanship skills. Our volunteer instructors travel across the country teaching those who attend about the difficult choices, the heroic actions, and the sacrifices that the Founders made on behalf of modern Americans, all of whom are their progeny.
Our heritage program vividly portrays the Battles of Lexington and Concord with the kind of care and immediacy that is absent from most formal schooling. Modern listeners are confronted with the danger, the fear, and the heartbreaking separations that arose out of the choices made on April 19th, 1775. They are also reminded of the marksmanship skills and masterful organization that ultimately helped set the colonists on the path to success.
