Special Hunter Education Camp – New Mexico

If there is one thing you can do to more readily comprehend hunters and hunting it is to complete a hunter education course. I volunteer and teach others not to create more hunters, but to create an awareness of conservation, wildlife, hunting, safety, laws, and more importantly ethics. After that, if one wants to take to the field to pursue wild animals, I support that! Listed below is a wonderful camp for youth. Have you attended a class or camp yet? — What about your kids?
