Hunting

Dare to explore your wildside!
How often we hear “I’ve always wanted to go hunting but I’ve got no-one to take me!” Well ladies “HERES YOUR CHANCE!
We start with firearm safety and target shooting before our careful country gals take you hunting for wild pigs, deer, or other pests such as possums, goats n’ rabbits. Not for sissies, yes you’ll climb a hill or two but its not hard core, and once you’ve bagged your prey, you’ll strut home to tell everyone about it! (Trust us they go green with envy!)
