    I was asked last night to become a hunter safety education instructor by one of the most qualified individuals in our state. I feel honored, but I may decline the offer. It requires a committment of time that at present I am unable to provide. I would really like to, but I am busy working with my own kids right now, and that has to take priority over other's needs.

    I wish I could quit this job and do these kinds of things more. Unfortunately, they don't pay volunteers much, so I guess I gotta compromise. And to think, I used to believe that if I could just get a job like this, I'd have it made. What was I thinking!!

    Man,do I know how ya feel. Between work and the stuff I have to do around the house just to keep things going,I find it hard to even get out to shoot for a few hours.
  4. You could become an instructer and just do one segment, one night, which would be a great help to other instructers and it would let you know if this was something you wanted to do in future years.

    I started out doing just the survival section of the Minnesota course. Then worked my way in to running my own classes.

    I have not done any the last few years as work has gotten in the way for me too. It is a comitment! That is for sure. My classes got too big also. About 50 kids each. 12 kids is about the perfect size class.

    I'm betting they asked the right man. It ain't easy deciding, but you will make the right choice.
