Education - Region 4

четверг, Февраль 11, 2016

Hunter and bowhunter education instructors from north central Montana were honored recently in Great Falls.

One Glacier County hunter education instructor – Don Crail – was honored for 50 years of teaching.

Crail, of Cut Bank, had his name placed a Hunter Education Hall of Fame plaque that hangs in the Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 4 office in Great Falls.

Besides Crail, 25 other instructors received service awards in January ranging from 5 to 30 years. All award recipients receive a plaque; additional awards include: an engraved knife for 10 years, an FWP belt buckle or jewelry for 20 years, a monetary award for 30 years, a monogrammed jacket for 40 years, and a hall of fame plaque for 50 years.

In FWP Region 4, almost 300 volunteers teach hunter and bowhunter education. These instructors certify about 1,000 students each year.
