A Hunter Safety Insructor's Views on Safety Courses

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Bob Sheldon has taught hunter safety courses in Missouri for several years. He is a guest columnist at The Press’ Outdoor Sports section and writes an article discussing the past history of Missouri’s hunter safety courses and shares facts about accident rates and fatalities.

One interesting aspect of Sheldon’s piece is his attitude about the affects of hunter safety over the years. Often times I read or listen to advocates for hunter safety classes and the attitude of the person is such that I am many times turned off by their approach and defensive posture.

The article is low key but still makes you want to go sign up for his course again.
