Indiana Hunter Education is now mandatory for hunters born after December 31, 1986. Older hunters are finding they, too, need H.E. certification to hunt in other states. It is important that all H.E. courses throughout the state are complete and consistent.
By attending the Academy, you can be assured that your classes meet or exceed Indiana’s minimum requirements and expectations. Programs include dealing with anti’s, hunting ethics, teaching techniques, as well as pointers for the basic disciplines of rifle, shotgun, and archery. Networking with other instructors and DNR staff will get you recharged and excited about Hunter Education again.
We are bringing in some very experienced instructors for these sessions. We are sure that you will have a lot of fun, too! Hospitality will be provided each evening, and a fun filled auction on Saturday night will be provided by the Indiana Hunter Education Association.
The Advanced topic this year is about the far-reaching effects of lead-based ammunition. It is presented by Chris Parish, Director of Global Conservation for The Peregrine Fund and Leland Brown, Oregon Zoo’s Non-lead Hunting Education Coordinator. They represent two of the three founding organizations forming The North American Non-Lead Partnership. Mr. Parish and Mr. Brown are being brought to Indiana from Arizona and Oregon by IHEA to present this informative and eye opening three-part, 12-hour program. Please register now, space will be limited!
