New Wyoming Hunters Learn From Mentor Program [VIDEO]
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department have come up with a Hunter Mentor Program for soon to be hunters.
This program is to help new hunters who can't go to course training, get advice and knowledge from an experienced mentor. The program has been around since 2008 and has been very successful. The hunter's education course has been a requirement to complete since 1966 in order to hunt in Wyoming. Hunter Mentor program allows for a temporary exemption. You must be 12 years or older in order to participate.
To qualify as a mentor, hunters must:
• Be at least 18 years old
• Possess a valid hunter education certificate and Wyoming hunting license while in the field with the mentee
• Sign the mentee’s special authorization certificate
• Document hunting license type/number on the mentee’s special authorization certificate
• Supervise only one mentee at a time in the field. A hunter may mentor multiple immediate family members.
• Maintain direct supervision, within sight and direct voice contact, of the mentee who is hunting at all times while in the field
