Members Sought For Master Hunter Advisory Group (extended to Jan. 9)
OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is accepting letters of interest through Jan 9 for membership on the department’s Master Hunter Advisory Group (MHAG).
Dave Whipple, WDFW hunter education division manager, encourages certified master hunters in Washington – especially those on the east side of the state – to apply for six positions on MHAG coming open next year.
The initial application period ended Nov. 30.
“We have received a good number of applications from western Washington, but we’d like to hear from more master hunters on the east side,” Whipple said. “The advisory group is designed to represent master hunters statewide.”
The group, which represents master hunters statewide, advises WDFW on issues and opportunities affecting master hunters and the Master Hunter Permit Program (MHPP).
Six volunteer positions will be opening on the 15-member group early next year. Five appointed members will serve three-year terms, and one will serve a one-year term. All appointees must retain their certification status during their entire term.
