Instructor Resources

Here we would like to provide Resources for Instructors to enhance their mission of teaching Hunter Education.

NRA – National Rifle Association


NSSF – National Shooting Sports Foundation

As the national voice of the firearms industry the NSSF is invested in safety and safety training.  NSSF provides a lot information and materials that may be of interest to the Hunter Education Instructor.

 The National Shooting Sports Foundation makes their safety and conservation educational materials available to hunter education instructors.  Per the order form, “This literature line-up is available free in quantities of up to 100 each annually if requested by volunteer hunter and firearms safety education instructors and is economically bulk-priced for purchase by state agencies, manufacturers, retailers and other groups.”
