Hunter Education programs have always taught beginning outdoor enthusiast the practice of firearm and hunting safety. Today, the Hunter Education program is more than just safety and is directed at more than just hunters. The program has been expanded to produce responsible, knowledgeable, and involved citizens – young men and women who understand the importance of complying with hunting laws and behaving ethically. The program teaches young outdoor enthusiast about the importance of wildlife management, and differences between preservation vs. conservation in wildlife management practices. Hunter Education strives to instill responsibility, improve skills, and knowledge. Responsible, ethical behavior and personal involvement are both essential to the survival of ethical hunting as well as wildlife conservation.
