A lot of people in their late teens and early twenties there. So that shows you there is a lot of new hunters out there.
Last year my instructors and I put 125 people through class. Some old and some as young as 12. We spend more time on ethics and safety then most of the other things. We also do much of our class outdoors and in the woods. The one thing I would like to see NYS let us do is survival.

The other thing we teach is not to lean into your scope
