Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources
Grants of up to $10,000 to Wisconsin government agencies, tribes, institutes of higher education, school districts, conservative organizations, or individuals to enhance the training of new hunters and mentors. Preference will be given to those that focus their programs on women, adults, and families. The primary purpose of this grant will be to ensure the education, training, and development of safe and ethical hunters and mentors. The secondary purpose is to continue the Learn to Hunt reimbursement program for sponsor groups and individuals.
Proposals that implement systems with documented success at producing new adult hunters who would not otherwise become hunters will receive top priority. Next priority will be proposals that test or trial new ideas and systems to train, develop, and educate new adult hunters and those that effectively re-train mentors to commit to new hunters for a period of years through multiple introductions and educational experiences in hunting.
Successful programs may be expanded within Wisconsin and adapted by other states. Applications that enhance public/private partnerships are strongly encouraged.
