Rural Sniper Deployments Course
Prepare for deployments in rural environments
This course is 8 hours and focuses on fieldcraft only with very little shooting. Students will learn to plan a route to a rural target site, properly equip for the mission, and execute a simulated deployment. Training will focus on fieldcraft, camouflage, observation and communication techniques, and maintaining a solid shooting platform. Rural environments present unique challenges that will be addressed and overcome during the exercise, which will culminate with a full debrief and the opportunity to make a shot simulating one from the hide position.
