NOTE: This event is organized and hosted by a third-party.

Tennessee Wildlife Federation, one of the largest and oldest independent nonprofits dedicated to conserving the state’s wildlife and natural resources, wants to teach the next generation how to hunt.

Hunter Masters are passionate volunteers who have been vetted and trained by the Federation as part of the Hunting and Fishing Academy. These volunteers are dedicated outdoorsmen and women who want to share their experience and passion for the great outdoors with first-time and novice hunters and anglers.

Through a comprehensive two-day training course, Tennessee Wildlife Federation will train you to become a Hunt Master who can host a hunting or fishing event from start to finish.

But it’s more than just hunting and fishing. We’ll help you incorporate primitive camping, skills training, range time, cooking, family bonding, and more to create a life-changing outdoor experience for Hunting and Fishing Academy participants.

Hunt Masters provide budding outdoor enthusiasts all the skills they need to go hunting or fishing again on their own—for a lifetime outdoors.

Even if you don’t want to lead a full event of your own, there are plenty of ways to help. Hunt Masters can also chip in to help with parts of others’ events. These opportunities include:

·         Assisting with hunt logistics

·         Cooking

·         Firearm instruction

·         Outdoor education

·         Guiding

·         and more

By training to become a Hunt Master, you’ll join a growing family of volunteers across the state who are making a difference for the future of generations of conservationists.

Each training session is just $95 and includes lodging, meals, and training materials. Training sessions begin at 6 p.m. with a working dinner and conclude by 2 p.m. the following day.
