Volunteers Sharing Experience with today's Youth.
Hunter Safety Instructors have joined together to share both knowledge and experience. The Association was formed to continue to assist the State of Michigan in producing Safe, Knowledgeable, Responsible, hunters. Members sit on many boards, such as test committees, Policy & Procedures. It also helps when communicating with the State staff. The association is able to collect and process state wide information that helps resolve both local and state wide issues that occur with Hunter Safety classes. There are nine districts in the State, from the far ends of the U.P. to the Ohio border. Members share a vast array of experience, which benefits the student. Membership is not limited to Instructors; Non Instructors can support the Association by becoming Affiliate Members. We need you as a member please consider joining.
