Become a Bowhunter Education Instructor

The Hunter Education Program's goals are to reduce hunting related incidents and violations; promote safe, responsible and knowledgeable hunting; and enhance hunting traditions and values. We now have more than 2,900 instructors, who include game wardens, volunteers and professional educators. These volunteer instructors certify an average of 30,000 students per year.
