This year’s Hunters Education course and field day was a big success. The class yielded 28 students and upon completion of the course all of the students were treated to dinner and a visit to see Lee Moore’s showcase.

Each year there are a couple of special awards that are given out at the end of the course. The first one is the Scott Rost Hunting Legacy Award. The award is a gift from the Scott Rost family and it is given to students who during the course exceeded the instructors’ expectations and demonstrated overall superior attitude, knowledge, skill, and participation during the Hunters Safety Program. This year’s recipients are Riley O’Donnell, Halle Burdick, and Michael Rusch. Each received a $50 gift certificate to Cabelas.

The second award is the Straight Shooter Award. This award is also a gift given by the instructors in memory of Mr. Thomas McGonigal. Mr. McGonigal was a Hunters Safety instructor for over 30 years, and he believed that everyone should always do their best, be good and most of all, “Shoot Straight”, whether it be a ball, an arrow, bullet, or life. Evaluation for this award is based on class participation and optional essay questions given at the beginning of the class. The questions are designed to make students think about what Hunters Safety means to them and also their perspective of the concept of conservation. This year’s stand-out award recipient was Wyatt Gaskins.

The program is taught by volunteer instructors Rick Madler, Vance O’Donnell, Mikenna O’Donnell, and Scotti Jo Robinson. This year’s helpers included instructor Kyle Vennes, FWP Officer Todd Enders, and volunteers Josh Green, Bill Kesinger, David and Nicole Kono, and Tim Robinson.
