This class will last approximately 6 hours.  Following the class, those who wish to shoot a proficiency course to qualify for the Hagerman NWR archery deer hunt will have that opportunity.  You are not required to shoot your bow as a part of the actual 6 hour classroom. If you do wish to shoot, bring your bow and arrows with you to be used in the proficiency course after class.  There is an additional $15 range fee that will be paid to the range if you wish to shoot. We will break 1 hour for lunch.  There are three restaurants in walking distance of the classroom, or you may drive to other restaurants in the area.  You may opt to bring a sack lunch if you wish.
