Close Shots


The 2019 convention in Reno will once again host Wayne Van Zwoll and his always popular shooting seminars. This time Wayne walks you through the process to get up close for that all important shot.

Deer, elk, pronghorn – whatever the game, close shots are best. Here’s how to get close, and shoot better when you can’t belly behind a bipod. Also: rifles, optics and loads Dr. van Zwoll favors for thickets and open places, and why trends haven’t changed his mind. His firearms background, fine photography and 45 years afield have made him one of hunting’s most widely published journalists. You’ll get facts, insights and techniques to enhance your hunt!
