Article Date: 
25 April, 2014 (All day)

Have you ever thought about sharing your passion for hunting with someone else?
You can reach out to hundreds — or even thousands — of people by serving as a volunteer Hunter Education course instructor.
“If you volunteer to serve,” says Ja Eggett, “you can make an amazing difference in the life of a young person.”
Don’t be concerned if you don’t have any teaching experience, says Eggett, assistant hunter education coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources.
“Our training will prepare you to be a good Hunter Education instructor,” he says.
