Hunters Marksmanship Course Deal (August 12-14, 2011)

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to drop a note and let you know that Storm Mountain Training Center (SMTC) is offering a reduced price for their hunter's marksmanship course offered on August 12-14, 2011.


I have trained at this school before and have always had a great experience. The instructors are top notch and the facilities are world class. Here is the information from the SMTC web site:

With the high cost of hunting equipment, firearms,
ammo, transportation, lodging, guides and licenses,
why not invest in your shooting abilities too?
Increase your odds of a clean first round kill on the
trophy of your lifetime. Storm Mountain Training
Center can prepare you and train you in up to date
techniques and tactics which will make you a better
hunter and marksman. Let our award winning
instructors teach you the skills that they teach law
enforcement and military snipers to make them
the best marksman in the world.
In three fun packed days, our instructor staff
will cover:
Fundamentals of marksmanship
Wind calling
Elevation holds
Range Estimation
Camouflage, concealment and
Mountain angle shooting
Moving targets
Zeroing procedures
Unknown distance field fire on realistic
and life-sized steel targets (100-750
In addition, we will coach and provide constant input/feedback which will provide positive improvement to your
shooting. Most past students have cut their group size at 100 yards in half in two days and were hitting in the
kill zones of deer, pigs, coyotes and ground hogs out to 500 yard on the first afternoon of the course.
Ammunition requirements: 300 rounds.
Prerequisite: None.
Required equipment: Scoped rifle, data and/or log book; appropriate eye, ear, knee and elbow protection;
clothing suitable for weather conditions.

For further details on the course see:


You can sign up for the class here:


Best of all:


I plan to attend the course simply for a chance to shoot at their facility for three days. That alone is worth $250. The instruction they will provide me is a nice bonus.

Happy Hunting,
Michael (NorCalShooter)

The nearest town is Elk Garden, WV. The nearest town with decent services (Walmart, food, bars, etc) is Keyser, WV.

If I fly I generally fly into Pittsburgh but D.C. is about the same distance. I come all the way from California to train here so that should tell you how highly I regard the training.

Last time I was at SMTC I got GPS coordinates for the parking area. According to my Garmin the coordinates are:

N 3921.932' W07906.493

Just be sure you turn into the driveway if you use the GPS. My Garmin tells me to drive past the driveway and go off-road through a forest . When I use an address with my GPS I use:

Pinnacle Road
Elk Garden, WV 26717

Remember when you get to Pinnacle Road to go two miles to SMTC which is on your left. If you just put Pinnacle Road into your GPS it will drop you short of the training center.

If you need to book a hotel I recommend:

Microtel Inn And Suites Keyser
70 North Tornado Way
Keyser, WV 26726
Phone: 304-597-1400
Fax: 304-597-1406
E-Mail: gm.keyser@mhotelmanagers.com
