Additional Training Opportunities

The Summit Bechtel Reserve
Hunters Education Certification Program

The Summit Bechtel Reserve Hunter Education Certification Program is now able to allow Scouts and Scout leaders the opportunity to receive their hunter education cards while on site participating in any of our summer programing activities. The program is held at the Crafton Sportsman Complex in Hunter’s Hall and includes opportunities to shoot Laser Shot at our state-of-the-art virtual shooting range in the Crafton Skills Center.

Once completed, participants can purchase a hunting license in any of the 50 states, plus Mexico, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The requirements to participate in the course are:

1. *Registration will be through the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Hunter’s Education website and the link and will be established at a later date.

2. Before you come to camp, complete an online Hunters Education course available at
Recommended courses are BeASafeHunter (which has a fee) or NRAHE (which is free).
Note: West Virginia should be the state selected as the state for online course
*This will not affect the recipients ability to purchase a hunting license in their home state.

3. Once you complete the course, bring your certificate of completion (voucher) on your scheduled date to qualify for the “hands-on” Hunter Education Certification class and test. Take a picture on your phone as a backup.

The Hunters Education course will be taught on Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. When completed and all requirements are met, participants will receive their Hunter Education cards.

*Once the WVDNR registration links for June and July are established, information will be sent out to explain how to register for the courses. If you have any questions, please contact:
