The OHEIA Board strongly encourages our members to explore and take advantage of the Grants section on this site. ODFW supports Hunter Education to the greatest degree possible, but there are facility and equipment needs for classes that are outside of their realm and beyond typical class funding abilities. Portable benches, clay bird launchers, video equipment, or permanent facility developments serving numerous classes are potential examples.
Greg Barron, President OHEIA

MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS: Did you renew your OHEIA membership? Our annual membership remains at $10, and our Lifetime Membership at $100. These dues are used through our grant program to help Instructors with financial assistance for their Hunter Education classes. All instructors are eligible for these funds. Our dues will be increasing soon (probably at the H.E. Conference). Be watching for that information.
On the website you will also find a grant application form with rules and guidelines on procedures to apply for a grant. Plan to take advantage of OHEIA’s assistance in your efforts to continue the success of your hunter education program.
If there are any questions or concerns with your membership, please feel free to contact me at my email address. I realize some of you are life members and others have already paid your dues, but I wanted to contact you just the same. Again, thank you for your support and involvement in our Association.
