Hunter Mentor Program
Looking for help getting started as a new hunter? Or are you an experienced hunter who enjoys sharing your knowledge and passing on the hunting tradition to new folks?
The Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Hunter Education team is partnering with Pheasants Forever/Quail Forever to bring the National Hunter Mentor program to our state and provide a well-designed resource that helps both mentors and mentees.
A curriculum developed by the
International Hunter Education Association provides the framework for training and preparing mentors to take new adult hunters afield. All Hunter Mentors in Pennsylvania will be certified as Hunter-Trapper Education instructors and receive state background checks.
If you would like to connect with a Hunter Mentor in your area to get started hunting or ask questions about hunting, please contact:

Are you in need of a few tips on how to scout and learn where to hunt? Do you regularly like to mentor people but are limited in time afield?
The new Digital Mentor program is a nationwide effort spearheaded by Powderhook, an outdoors-focused media company working to engage more participants in hunting and shooting sports.
