"The content of this video series is superb. It is timely, relevant, and factual."
Jim Carter, Hunter Education Administrator, North Dakota Game & Fish Department

Introduction to Hunter Education video

This concise video explains why hunter education is needed, who sponsors it, why it is vital to wildlife conservation, and how it is funded. It also highlights and pays tribute to the 65,000 instructors who teach the course, and gives credit to local sponsoring organizations such as conservation clubs and civic groups. Use this video to start your course off right and generate local support for your program.

Hunting Safety video

This video covers firearm safety, transportation, handling firearms in the field, safe shot selection, hunter visibility, treestand safety, firearm actions, archery, blackpowder, home firearm safety, matching guns and ammunition, safely cleaning firearms, clearing barrels of obstructions, crossing obstacles, avoiding alcohol, and zones of fire. And more.

This is a great video to use for presentations with scout groups, schools, and civic organizations to teach gun safety and introduce people to hunting. Some instructors also use it for refresher courses or alternative courses using home study and field day classes. This video is also used in many corporate employee safety training programs.

Hunter Responsibility video

Hunter ethics and responsibility is tightly integrated throughout the Hunter Education Video Series DVD. This title takes a no-nonsense approach to legal and ethical hunter behavior. The Hunter Responsibility video is based on research that shows people make behavioral decisions one one or more of three criteria:

  • Sometimes people make decisions on a punishment basis. "Is what I want to do illegal, what is the chance of getting caught, and what is the penalty if I do get caught?"  Our videos show many instances of wildlife officers checking hunters and we use authentic footage of officers arresting poachers and violators. This video makes it very clear that hunting and poaching are two different things.
  • Sometimes people are most influenced by the behavior of people around them and their understanding of society's expectations for their behavior. This video stresses the fact that large numbers of hunters organize into conservation groups, and these groups expect and demand a high standard of responsible behavior. Hunting is, and should continue to be, an honorable activity.
  • Sometimes people are driven by a higher calling, and with experience in the field they develop self-imposed standards of conduct that guide their own behavior. These people often rise to positions of leadership and become defenders of our outdoor heritage.

Considering these criteria, the hunter responsibility video covers self-respect, as well as respect for the resource, other hunters, landowners, and non-hunters. Students are exposed to the benefits of belonging to local, state, and national conservation groups. This video also features footage of Theodore Roosevelt, and avid hunter who is widely revered as the President who did more to conserve wild things and wild places than any other President.

Outdoor Safety video

The Outdoor Safety video covers risks related to physical health and conditioning, survival, hypothermia, heat exhaustion, heart attacks, falls, boating accidents, and more. Important points are driven home by the use of actual news footage showing rescues, lost hunters, and survival situations.

This is another popular video used in corporate employee safety training programs.

Wildlife Conservation in North America video

Thanks to hunters, North America has the most successful system of wildlife management in the world. The basic principles of wildlife management are explained and made real with the use of actual television news footage. See how wildlife biologists monitor populations, restore endangered species, protect habitat, cope with disease outbreaks, and control over populations. Students will also learn about disagreements among people over how wildlife should be managed. Includes some outstanding photography of wildlife and habitats found across North America.

This video is a great tool to use with non-hunters or general audiences. If you need a video that supports the role of hunters and hunting in wildlife management use this to develop understanding and support. The message is clear. Wildlife and wild places are abundant in North America today because of hunting.

Hunting for Success video

Designed to be shown near the end of your course, this video will help students integrate their newly acquired knowledge, skills, and attitudes so they can safely purse game with increased chances for a safe and enjoyable hunt. One clear message is that safe, enjoyable hunts are successful hunts. Sometimes, hunters fill their tags, and that is an added bonus.

Hunting Opportunities video

Hunter safety education is only one part of the process of becoming a lifelong hunter, dedicated to preserving our natural heritage and conserving wildlife for future generations. This video video helps students and their families learn about opportunities to go hunting, participate in advanced training programs, and join groups dedicated to hunting or target shooting.
