Our Volunteers take great pride in being part of one of the most respected and success programs in the country. We have dedicated Instructors that have served the program for over 40 years. Those Instructors feel that they are truly held at a higher standard as sportsmen and women. Instructors must maintain a very high ethical standard in the hunting field and in the classroom to be role models and mentors to young hunters. Being a good role model means protecting the integrity of the program. Hundreds of dedicated Volunteers have given of themselves to keep hunting a safe and ethical outdoor activity.
