    Fieldsports Channel on Youtube just released this video about training as a PH. Would this be a good video to show my Outdoor Adventure Class.

    I think we have at least one notable member on her that has completed the PH school. I think he lives in the great white north somewhere!

    I think that is a great video to show the class. It may inspire some to try the adventure like the fellow who did it in a gap year. Better than leaving school with no direction and rattling around the mall

    This is ONE of the schools for training. SAWC is a comprehensive program.
    Nice promo overview. It is a great demo of parts of the course on offer.
    There are other training programs in South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe.

    It's interesting that a many of the students have never handled a gun. Must be plenty of B-BBEE involved in this particular school.

    We had a couple of students that had not handled a rifle and were taking the course as part of the college training. Awesome students but I would not be running around hunting with them.

    I'm still learning every day Charlie. I get lessons from every last PH I hunt with.
    Never stop learning.

    Ok, rushing between JH football practice and my Anatomy class could you post contact info for some of these other programs. I can put together a packet of info for my OA Classes and share it with other schools. Brickburning is better than googling(y)(y)(y)
