There is no fee for the class and all equipment will be provided. Students will not be permitted to use their own muzzleloading firearms.

Volunteers from the Nevada Department of Wildlife Hunter Education Program will teach the class, which will include a brief lecture on the various types of muzzleloading rifles available today, a discussion about safety precautions and a demonstration of loading and shooting techniques. 

Participants will have the opportunity to load and shoot flintlock, percussion cap and modern in-line rifles. The class will also cover the proper cleaning and storage of muzzleloading firearms.

Seating is limited. NDOW staff will begin taking reservations March 5 at 9:30 a.m. For reservations call Brooke Van Haitsma at (702) 486-5127 x 3213. Voice messages will not be accepted for registration.
