Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Hunter Education Instructors Needed

ATHENS — Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) will be conducting a free hunter education new instructor training workshop Saturday, August 13, 2011, in Waco. The workshop will be from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Dewey Recreation Center, 925 N. 9th Street.

Instruction will be offered for new applicants and currently certified instructors in skills trail, live firing exercises and home study procedures. The training puts fun and exciting activities into the learning experience. Students will benefit by going through actual hunting simulations and by making their own decisions regarding responsible actions using “shoot-don’t-shoot” scenarios.

Before attending this workshop, you must go to the following web site and prepare yourself by going over the instructor training manual. You will sign an acknowledgement and release that you have done this pre-workshop assignment as part of your training. The site is http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/learning/hunter_education/instruct.phtml.

Every Texas hunter born on or after September 2, 1971, must successfully complete a hunter education course. The hunter education program’s goals are to reduce hunting-related accidents and violations; promote safe, responsible and knowledgeable hunting; and enhance hunting traditions and values.

Hunter education provides instruction in Texas hunting regulations, wildlife management and identification, conservation, ethics, firearm and hunting safety and responsibility and outdoor skills.

By understanding hunting through education, hunters and non-hunters alike will help make a bright future for the sport.

To register, contact TPWD Area Chief Brent Heath at (254) 722-5660 or heathconstruction@juno.com.
