Field outings and occasional classroom seminars are held over a two- or three-day weekend once a month. Two hunts occur on extended weekends, from Thursday to Sunday or Monday. We strictly adhere to regulations set by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife; therefore, class days can vary from year to year.
The bulk of the program takes place during monthly hunting trips. These trips generally take place over Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, although the big game hunt is longer. Special classroom seminars are usually two consecutive days, on Saturdays and Sundays.
The majority of our time is spent in the field at various hunting locales in Eastern and Western Washington. Hunting locations are announced to students upon completed enrollment. When in the field, the class will be camping in a variety of remote environments. Classroom instruction occurs at Earthwalk Northwest in Bellevue, WA, about 20 minutes east of Seattle.
Tuition is $4,400 and includes eight months of monthly hunting trips for various game, including big game, small game, upland game birds, waterfowl, and wild turkey, as well as coastal outings for surf fishing, clam digging, and oysters. In-depth classroom instruction also includes field to freezer, saltwater and freshwater fishing, building game calls and game calling and orientation.
