    Excellent, informative course with a very knowledgeable instructor. material was presented in a way that was very easy to digest. I was able to get my fwid and, subsequently, a hunting licence. with the knowledge I acquired during this course I successfully harvested my first game animal less than 3 weeks after completing it. I would recommend eric as an instructor.
