From the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department
-- A new Vermont bowhunter education instructor training workshop will be held at the Waterbury State Office Complex on July 18, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“The work is demanding, and the hours are often long,” says Hunter Education Coordinator Chris Saunders. “However, our 350 active instructors love volunteering because they know they are contributing to the future of hunting and trapping.”
Instructor requirements include a minimum age of 18, three years of bowhunting or shooting experience, no felonies. Applicants must also pass an instructor exam, pass a background investigation and attend a one day new instructor workshop. Applicants can still take the instructor course if the background check has not been completed, but will not be certified until the check is final.
More than 2,000 future bow hunters are educated by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Volunteer Certified Instructors yearly. Classes can be arranged to fit the instructor’s schedule. All required materials are supplied free by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.
