This Manitoba Hunter Education Program Student Manual was developed by Manitoba Conservation, the Manitoba Wildlife Federation, and the Manitoba Junior Rifle Clubs Committee.
In Manitoba, thousands of hunters take to the field each year. Hunters make this annual pilgrimage to woods and water so that they can experience the natural world and be an active participant in it.
Over 20 million students have graduated from North American Safety/Hunter Education courses. These courses have contributed to a significant decrease in hunting accidents and an increased understanding of the responsibilities each hunter accepts while hunting.
The primary goal of the Hunter Education Program is to help you understand the important role you, as a hunter, have in wildlife management and conservation. Equally important is the safe use and handling of firearms and the ethical and responsible behaviour of all hunters.
