LEARN TO HUNT THROUGH THE 
OUTDOOR BOUND
MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

 
 

The Outdoor Bound Mentorship Program provides youth and new hunters

with the opportunity to learn the basics of hunting and the importance of

conservation and ethics from experienced adults.

 

If you are a new  hunter interested in learning more, or an adult who is willing to pass on

the traditions of big game or waterfowl hunting to the next generation in Alberta,

please contact:

 
 

 

 
     
     
 

OUTDOOR  YOUTH CLUB

The Alberta Hunter Education Instructor’s Association is well known for the exemplary work it has done with Conservation Education over the years. We are responsible for the implementation of all Hunter Education Programs, Fishing Education Programs, Canadian Firearms Safety Courses, the International Bowhunter Education Program, and numerous other outdoor related training courses in Alberta.

 In an effort to involve our youth in these rewarding, educational programs and way of life, we have created an Outdoor Youth Club for youth ages 12-19 that enjoy the outdoors and would like to get together with others who share their passion for wildlife, wild places, and outdoor adventure.

 Our goal is to develop a core group of youth who share our passion for the outdoors. With our assistance and guidance we want this group to help bring more young people into the program. Initially, we will meet once every two months for a variety of events that the club members would like to participate in, such as shooting, archery, outdoor survival, fishing, hiking, canoeing, etc. We want to encourage this group to become actively involved in numerous outdoor conservation activities now and in the future. Our long-term goal is to establish satellite groups throughout the province.

All Club members will receive a Certificate and Wallet Card identifying them as members of the Outdoor Youth Club. In the near future, members will be able to present their membership card at select businesses to obtain valuable discounts and specials.

 Once some regular monthly attendance has been developed, the plan is for the group to elect an operating Board of Directors. This board would consist of a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Publicity Coordinator, Membership Coordinator, Events Coordinator, and AHEIA liaisons. With our assistance and guidance they will then be able to make their own decisions regarding club content, including the nature and frequency of activities the club will participate in.

 The Club will also be able to keep everyone informed of their activities through regular submissions to AHEIA’s monthly Conservation Education magazine. Further exposure will also be gained with a presence at sports shows, gun shows, and other similar venues.

 It is also our goal to develop a network of Junior Hunter Education Instructors from this valuable and dedicated group of youngsters.  We feel strongly that this program will help our youth to develop into adults who have Wildlife and Fish as part of their value system, who possess strong wildlife ethics and a genuine understanding of the importance of Conservation Education in Alberta and around the world.

 The development of tomorrow’s leaders and future instructors starts here!

A Hunting Story
ROSEHIPS, GEESE & SIZE TWO BOOTS
By Dr. Lee Foote
October 28, 2005

 Malaise toward hunting is a rare sensation for me in the fall. The foliage is brilliant, days are crisp, and hunting season is in full swing, but this fall I dare not dwell on hunting, and consequently, a faint palor has settled over me.

You see, my wife is overseas and I am a full time dad to Eva, a blonde 4th  grade momma’s girl and a 3-year-old firebrand named Antonia. Sure, the intense dad/daughter time is a real delight but that is year-round. 

The air is full of distractions but none worse than the skeins of small-race Canada geese and arctic-nesting White-fronted geese I see pouring into the fields surrounding Edmonton.

A Hunting Story
HERE'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!!

Told to us by a 14 year old

Josh is 14 years old and has been hunting after he became of age, and was able to enroll in a hunter safety class. Josh has proved to be a conscientious and successful hunter. His enthusiasm about hunting and fishing is worth sharing and today I share my column with Josh's essay. 

"WHAT MAKES A HUNTER A HUNTER?"

by Josh

Mine are well here it comes, the opinion of a 14 year old! I have many
things that I think makes a hunter a hunter...

~ A person who wakes up at the crack of dawn, no matter the conditions, and goes into the woods, marsh, cut corn field or where ever it may be to spend time outdoors.

~ A person who is a conservationist and hunts not only to hunt, but realizes that they are playing a vital role in the conservation of the animal that they so choose to hunt.

~ A person who can look back on the first day they hunted and tell their kids about it and then their grand kids.

~ A person who hunts out of the sheer passion and love for nature and all, and I mean ALL it has to offer.

~ A person who rates the hunt, not by the amount in the bag, but rather by the good conversations in the blind, the time spent with friends, family and the beauty of the day.

~ A person who will give up some of their time hunting to assist another person.

~ A person who goes beyond the point of duty to bring in the next generation to make sure that our GREAT tradition can continue! I would like to thank Bob Muller of
www.surfscotersportingadventures.com for bringing me into this WONDERFUL SPORT!!!!

~ A person who realizes that it is not about the guns you have, the gear you have, your boat, your gold plated hunting spot or the money you put into it.

~ A person who reads the regulations, time and time again, to make sure that they know them. (I am willing to bet I am almost able to recite the regulation book I have read it so many times!)

~ A person who enjoys the thrill of seeing a youngster shoot his first shot at a duck, or goose. or deer, or pheasant, or whatever the (wild game) may be.

~ A person who will carry on the tradition of AMERICA'S PAST TIME! These are what I think makes up a duck hunter!


Lets HUNT! Have a safe, enjoyable, memorable hunt. Take a kid hunting as often as possible because they are tomorrow's leaders and at this rate we need a lot more of them. I LOVE HUNTING!
