The Hunter Education Program provides grant funds to the states and insular areas fish and wildlife agencies for projects to provide instruction in firearm and archery safety, wildlife management, conservation, ethics, game laws, outdoor survival and wilderness first aid. The goal is to teach students to be safe, responsible, conservation-minded hunters. Most States require completion of a hunter education course prior to purchasing a hunting license. Funds may also be used for the development, operation and enhancement of target range facilities.
