Hunter Safety Education Instructors Wanted:

The course is free to the public and taught by volunteer certified Instructors.  Unfortunately, our club has only two Basic Hunter Education qualified instructors. To date we have relied upon the availability and goodwill of instructors from other clubs. This source of instructions may not continue to be available to the club in the future.

The requirement to become a Basic Hunter Education qualified instructor is minimal.  The rewards are great!  To know that you have helped train knowledgeable, ethical and safe hunters for sport we all enjoy.

Please consider becoming a Massachusetts Hunter Education Safety Instructor.  The program depends on volunteers like you.  It would also be a shame to see our Club lose a program this is such a valuable educational asset. For further information on becoming an Instructor, please contact Tim Gallant at
