Louisiana -(Ammoland.com)- The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has officially launched the Explore Bowhunting Program with its fist instructor training conducted July 28 at Cypress Bend Park near Many, La.
Held in conjunction with the Louisiana Agriculture Teachers Association Convention, 18 teachers learned how to present this exciting program to students enrolled in their Ag classes.
Agriculture teachers in Louisiana provide the perfect platform to teach Explore Bowhunting in Louisiana schools. Most are outdoor enthusiasts and already certified to teach hunter education.
Developed by the Archery Trade Association, Explore Bowhunting is an educational program designed to help instructors, program leaders and educators teach students ages 11-17 the basic skills of bowhunting. The Archery Trade Association has created this program to spark an interest and passion for bowhunting in today’s youth. Through these hands-on experiences students gain confidence interacting with the natural environment and strengthen their appreciation for wildlife and the woods.
