Hunters Education Field Day

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!

Apply to teach hunter education

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:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • be knowledgeable about sporting arms, wildlife and hunting.

Complete the instructor application and send it to the Hunter Education Coordinator in your region. Regional emails and phone numbers are located to the right of the article.

What happens after you apply?

After you submit your application, you will be scheduled for fingerprinting and a confidential background check by the State Department of Law Enforcement. Next, we provide orientation and training, which includes observing and assisting a veteran instructor.
