CO: Huntmaster training this summer

Our heritage as a nation was built on a love for the outdoors
and the great opportunities for family and friends to share a
campfire, stream or meadow. However, the trend in public
participation in outdoor activities continues to decline
nationwide.

The Division of Wildlife began the Hunter Outreach Program in
2002 to assist families; youth, women and novice hunters in
learning the skills, finding the opportunities and rekindling the
spirit of the hunt. We have a trained cadre of volunteers called
Huntmasters who spend over 10,000 hours per year teaching, coaching
and mentoring participants in outdoor skills.

The Hunter Outreach Program is hosting three training courses
this summer to add new volunteers to the Huntmaster family. Courses
in Denver, Lamar and Grand Junction will provide two days of
training for prospective Huntmasters. During the training, you will
learn to plan, organize, and conduct hunting and shooting events
for novice participants.

If you wish to become a part of this unique team of dedicated
volunteers, go to the Hunter Outreach Website to learn more about
the program and register for a course. Invest in the trust fund of
our hunting heritage that will pay dividends for generations to
come.
