Kyle Defoor and Sayoc Tactical
This course is recommended for experienced shooters who are physically and mentally ready for the the ultimate training challenge, and willing to put their tactics to real use. This course tests all aspects of tactical gunfighting under extreme stress with experienced operators paired with students for safety and learning.
Students will plan and execute a stalking or still hunt of wild boar to include; navigation to objective area, tactics on target, ballistic data check, field dress and skinning of boar using blade techniques taught by Sayoc, expedient packing out of meat, navigation back to camp.
This course meets many criteria I have been aspiring to achieve in training classes over the years;
1. Conservation- we will be conducting these classes in areas that have been ravaged by wild pigs/boars. Particularly wheat and corn fields of farmers and communities who depend on these crops for economical growth. We have already identified many areas throughout the country for many classes to come.
2. Charity- we will be quickly packing the meat out of the field into freezers and distributing it to local shelters, the needy, and the homeless. This aspect of the class will be laid on in advance of students arrival. Students are not required to be present when we deliver the meat, but are required to give up their meat for charity.
3. Ballistics info- Students will see for real what bullets do and don't work as advertised. Students may bring their own ammo (instructor approved) or use the many brands we will have on site. Students can also use any caliber they desire within reason. I personally will use an M4 as will Tom and most of the other guys.
4. Tactics/gear- Students will be able to see what individual tactics work best (high ready, low ready, etc.) and will be introduced to some basic field tactics by us that apply to hunting dangerous animals. This will be a great way to test gear as well.
5. Zero- Students will be able to see what zero works at varying distances.
6. Blade work- Students will have the opportunity to use their blades for real and see what type of blade they like and what type works best for their needs.
This is not a carbine class to learn in. Students should show up with a rough zero. There will be a zero confirmation with the students chosen ammo on day one. Students who do not have an adequate blade will have the opportunity to use Sayoc blades and purchase them if they like. Hunts will be conducted on the ground. No stands. Expect long periods of walking in varying terrain, unexpected weather, and carrying a pack of 20-30 lbs in addition to your gear. Because of the unpredictability of these animals this is a dangerous course and students will need to have the right mindset before coming. All students must be a graduate of a known carbine course (TS, BW, Vickers, VTAC, etc.) and be available for a phone interview before course date. Any video students have of themselves shooting and conducting basic weapon handling skills (reloads, up drills, stand to kneel, etc.)should be sent for review.
