Training and Education


Safe, responsible, and enjoyable sporting begins with comprehensive training and continued education. Whether you are a beginner or an old pro, education and knowledge is the key to safety on the range or in the field. Because there is no such thing as an accident when it comes to firearms handling, Ipswich Fish and Game is proud to offer continuing education for our members and the public.
