You can by serving as a volunteer Hunter Education course instructor.

Starting in January, the Division of Wildlife Resources will train new instructors at classes in Salt Lake City, Brigham City, Logan and Springville.

The DWR will also hold classes in southern Utah this spring.

"You can make an amazing difference in the life of a young person by volunteering to serve," says Kirk Smith, assistant hunter education coordinator for the DWR.

"And don't be concerned if you don't have any experience teaching young people. Our training will help prepare you to be a good Hunter Education instructor."

The instructor training is free. More information about the training including dates and locations is available at online.

After reaching that part of the site, scroll down to the "See schedule" selection at the very bottom of the page. Dates and locations are available there.

"If you look at the schedule and you don't see a training session in your part of the state, please call us," Smith says. "If there's enough interest in the area of the state where you live, we'll put a training session together for you."

You can reach Smith at 1-800-397-6999.
