Throughout the state there are over 70 active Hunter Education volunteers supported by a staff of five full time employees.

The volunteers are the heart of the program. These are men and women who among other things, willingly submit to criminal background checks, interviews, and face other requirements for the simple opportunity and privilege to pass on knowledge and skills to the public. Not surprisingly, the average volunteer is usually involved in many other community activities and is typically a very busy person.

Some of the volunteers hunt while others do not. What they have in common is their love for the outdoors and a desire to instill values about outdoor responsibility, conservation, and safety. To be a part of this truly dedicated and commited group of people is to be a member of a very positive and influential family.
