As a life long ethical hunter I believe in passing on the hunting lifestyle to the next generation of hunters. I began volunteer teaching Hunter Safety for Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) in 2002. Hundreds of students, both young and old, have passed through my class over the years. I have also had the privilege of chaperoning and operating as the range officer on multiple FWC youth hunts. Both of these programs pass on the love of hunting lifestyle through safety. Hunter Up is a prime example of a company that embodies this philosophy. This symbol has become easily identifiable for the sport of hunting, the hunter and hunter safety. Members of the hunting community now recognize Hunter Up trail marker tape, perimeter tape or tree wrap as a “stay away” area to keep both hunters and non-hunters safe. This year I was awarded Outstanding Hunter Safety Area Coordinator of the Year for 2016 by FWC. I could not have earned this award without the support of the volunteers with the classes and having the real world evidence of safety through companies like Hunter Up.
