Katie has been Trap Shooting for about 10 years and teaching all over Manitoba for the past five. She teaches Possession Acquisition License (Non-Restricted and Restricted), Hunters Education and Trap Shooting lessons.
After a couple years of competing, Katie realized so many people wanted to learn about firearms and there weren’t many places to go. So, she decided to find a way to help. Whether you want to become a more proficient hunter, shooter, collector or just to learn something new, Katie can give you direction. She looks forward to bringing more people into the shooting community and helping everyone that asks.
"My Father has been a great asset in pushing me to succeeded, teaching me everything he knows, competing by my side and this past summer we built our own Trap Shooting range. Now I will be able to teach theory and live firing on my own property. I hope to see you at the Manitoba Outdoors show and feel free to stop by my booth for a chat!" - Katie Jones
