Arizona Seeking Hunter Ed Volunteers

Arizona Game and Fish Department is looking for knowledgeable individuals to serve as a Volunteer Hunter Education Instructor and teach hunter education courses.

Interested volunteers may sign up now for a free training program for future hunter education instructors.

The two-day Volunteer Hunter Education Instructor program will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. this weekend, June 23-24, at the department’s Pinetop Regional Office, 2878 E. White Mountain Blvd. Volunteer instructors must be at least 18 years old.

If selected to participate in the Volunteer Hunter Education Instructor program, you’ll learn how to teach a standardized curriculum and share your knowledge of hunting and the outdoors. By the time the 16-hour course is done you’ll be ready to work with teams to promote safe, ethical and responsible hunting.

Volunteer hunter education instructors make it possible for Game and Fish to offer hunter education programs to people of all ages at locations throughout Arizona. New hunters learn about safely handling firearms and bowhunting equipment, the importance of wildlife management, and gain a good working knowledge of important laws and regulations.

Advance registration is required and space is limited. Contact Dave Williams at (623) 236-7434 or dwilliams@azgfd.gov, or Ashley Lynch at (623) 236-7242 or alynch@azgfd.gov.
