Designed to help beginning hunters develop skills beyond the basic hunter education course and introduce new disciplines to experienced hunters, the Hunter Skills Weekend offers instruction in shooting, woodsmanship and hunting techniques for a variety of species.

In cooperation with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, the Virginia Sportsmen’s Foundation hosts a Hunter Skills Weekend at Liberty Corner Farm in Albemarle, VA. Taught by Ike Wright, a registered Maine hunting guide and a Master Outdoor Hunter Education instructor with over 40 years of outdoor experience, course participants receive their required Hunter Safety Course certificate after 6 hours of classroom and hands-on instruction. This program is also made possible by 001 Outdoor Adventures, Albemarle Sheriff Chip Harding and Virginia Beach Sheriff Ken Stolle.
