Hunting & Shooting Sports Outreach Program

The primary goal of this program is to provide initial and next steps for novice hunters and shooters such that they will feel comfortable moving forward in the shooting and hunting sports as a result of their experiences and the connections they are able to make in the program. The program is comprised of a variety of mini-workshops, mentored hunts and other events in partnership with shooting ranges, Non-Governmental Organizations and state, local and federal governmental agencies. This program is designed to be as hands-on as possible, giving participants enough knowledge to further pursue their interests once their participation in the program has concluded.
