Hunter Education Instructors

Our instructors are the heart of Idaho’s Hunter Education. They volunteer to pass on Idaho’s hunting heritage and teach safe, ethical hunting. What they do saves lives and reduces hunting accidents. Make a difference and join us!

To teach hunter education, you need to be a certified instructor. Instructors can specialize as hunting, bowhunting and/or trapping instructors.

To apply, you need to:
