MONTPELIER (AP) - The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is offering a course for people who want to become volunteer teachers of hunting, trapping, or bow-hunting courses.

The course will take place July 18 and 19 at the Fish & Wildlife's Green Mountain Conservation Camp at Buck Lake in Woodbury.

The course will cover policies and procedures, field experience and teaching methods so applicants can teach future Vermont hunters how to have a safe and enjoyable experience. After attending the training course, all applicants must shadow a chief instructor before they can teach on their own

Participants may stay at the camp, but must bring camping supplies, including a sleeping bag. Breakfast and lunch on Saturday will be provided.
