German/American Hunting Course

While in Germany, do a little hunting and sports shooting with Outdoor Recreation.

This hunting course consist of class lectures, range nights, hunting area clean-up days, and individual shooting requirements.

  • Class lectures are scheduled every Tuesday and Thursday night
  • Range nights are scheduled on Wednesdays
  • Training area/hunting clean-up days will be announced during the class

Range nights are useful for practice shooting on various targets: running boar, running rabbits, and 100 meter standing Reh targets. Each of these shooting competencies will be part of your final test. Each night that we host range there will be 10 - 15 range fee plus any ammunition required (purchase through ODR or at the range). Shotgun shells run $8 - $12 per box and .223 rounds are $12 - $15 per box. Prices are subject to change depending upon the current exchange rate. Range nights are usually about 8 - 10 times per class. 

We strongly suggest bringing your own hearing protection as our supply is limited.

To be eligible to test, you are required to participate in 2 of the 3 range nights, 5 of the 8 running range nights, and you cannot miss more than 4 nights of lectures. The number of scheduled range nights may vary depending on host nation ranges and scheduling times.

You will also be required to shoot a 150 clay targets (no more than 45/day) and document on  your green shooting card. This card will be given to you the first night of class.
