Hunter Education Instructors

Oregon Hunter Education Instructors are volunteers from across the state who have been specifically trained to deliver hunter education courses. Each volunteer is required to complete an initial application, which includes a short knowledge test, pass a criminal and wildlife background check, and participate in a four-phase training process.
