Since 1962 (Berlin's inception of the Hunter-Education Program) a total of   4,161 students have successfully completed Hunter Education in Berlin.

In 1989 the Androscoggin Valley Fish & Game Association with the

guidance of the NH Fish & Game Department, formed its own all volunteer "Hunter Education Team". From that point 2,002 students have been certified through the efforts and dedication of the AVF&GA "Hunter-Ed Team". As chief instructor I would like to thank each and every Instructor and all support staff who were involved with our September 2018 class. They are the reason for the program's continued success!

It is an Honor to be associated with such professional, knowledgeable,

and giving "Special People" for without these devoted "Team Members" there simply would not be a Hunter Education Program in existence in the Berlin area. Be Safe...Get Certified!!!
