The National Rifle Association of America was pleased to present a donation of $173,911 to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency for their residents’ use of NRA’s award-winning, free online hunter education course. Peter Churchbourne, Director of the NRA Hunters’ Leadership Forum, presented a ceremonial check during a meeting of the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission on September 16, 2022, in Spencer, TN.

“We are so grateful for the partnership with NRA to provide completely online and free hunter education for all Tennesseans,” said Jenifer Wisniewski, Director of Marketing and Special Projects for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. “This course is truly cutting-edge and the best course out there for someone looking to get their hunter education online. We are also grateful for the funding that the agency receives as a result of our residents taking this course.”

The funds received by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency can be used to apply for Pittman-Robertson grants that would result in the state receiving over $521,000 in federal matching funds to support hunting, conservation, and shooting programs in Tennessee.

“We are pleased that the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency adopted our free alternative for hunter education and that they capitalized on the opportunity to use the match to receive Pittman-Robertson funds,” said Churchbourne. “It is good to see all the hard work come full circle to benefit their agency and their state’s residents."

Designed and provided by the organization that built the first-ever hunter education program in the United States in 1949, the NRA Hunter Education online course offers a fresh and fully comprehensive approach to hunter education. The 15-chapter, online sequence features attention-grabbing videos, eye-catching graphics and diagrams, interactive modules, audio recordings and dozens of action photos presented in appealing, and easy-to-access components that provide the best method for teaching future hunters lessons they will remember for the rest of their lives.
