From Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation
The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation has announced the dates for its 2009 hunter education workshops to be held free of charge at H&H Gun Range Shooting Sports Outlet in Oklahoma City.
"Volunteer instructors are crucial to the success of our hunter education classes statewide," said Lance Meek, hunter education coordinator for the Wildlife Department.
"We also rely heavily on our partners like H&H. We couldn't get hunter education done without the involvement of our community."
Volunteer instructors teach and assist in numerous classes throughout the state each year, making hunter education more readily available for more Oklahomans. Volunteers help set up and teach classes, assist other instructors and represent the Wildlife Department and sportsmen of the state.
Annually, the Wildlife Department certifies approximately 15,000 new sportsmen and women to enjoy Oklahoma's great hunting opportunities.
To become a volunteer instructor, contact Lance Meek at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (405) 522-4572.
Workshops are scheduled for Feb. 7, June 13, Aug. 8, and Dec. 12, 2009, at H&H Gun Range, located at the I-40 and Meridian area in Oklahoma City (400 S. Vermont, Suite 110).
