OHA is encouraging members to become certified instructors of the Intro to Big Game Hunting course through ODFW. ODFW is interested in certifying OHA members as instructors through their Train the Trainer program, which would allow the courses to be taught throughout the state.
Members are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to become instructors and begin hosting Intro to Big Game Hunting courses in their local areas. To become certified as an instructor, contact Cat Sandor-Korte with ODFW at catherine.N.Sandor-Korte@state.or.us for more information.
This opportunity is also the initial phase of a larger Learn to Hunt Program that OHA is developing and plans to roll out to chapters this year.
OHA’s program includes additional components, such as a library of course outlines and teaching tools, a guide for hands-on day trip modules, and an online resource library.
