WHAT IS EXPLORE BOWHUNTING?

Explore Bowhunting is an outdoor conservation education program focusing on interactions with people and wildlife.  Explore Bowhunting teaches students how to relate with the natural world by developing basic skills used to bowhunt which focus on getting close to animals.

Explore bowhunting is more than a tool to teach bowhunting, it is:

  • Engaging hands on activity-based lessons on animal behavior, use of senses, tracking, and animal interactions
  • Innovative program that introduces the challenge and thrill of being close enough to hunt, photograph or simply enjoy wildlife

WHO CAN USE EXPLORE BOWHUNTING?

Explore Bowhunting’s audience is formal educators of middle and high school students and informal educators of students ages 11-17; however, this does not limit the use of the program. Adults and younger students would enjoy this curriculum. Whether your goal is to teach bowhunting in one course or choose individual activities to illustrate or further develop a skill, Explore Bowhunting’s innovative approach will keep your students motivated.

  • Schools – both in-school and after-school programs
  • Parks and Recreation Departments
  • Community programs such as Scouts, 4-H and summer camps
  • Game camps
  • Anyone interested in teaching youth how to get close to wildlife, bowhunt, photograph and/or enjoy wildlife

CURRICULUM AND MATERIALS

The Explore Bowhunting program consists of 22 different hands on activities, an instructor curriculum book, student handbooks, an equipment kit, media materials and board game. All 22 activities can be taught in succession or an instructor can pick and choose to meet their needs.
