REQUEST to Attend a GSO Hunting Workshop Please review all below before requesting to attend
Getting Started Outdoors Hunting Workshops address informational barriers to participation and primarily meant for those who are interested in hunting, but don’t know how to get started. GSO is accomplished by providing a surrogate mentored experience for those lacking social support via existing hunting family member or friend.
GSO workshops are designed to teach new to hunting individuals "how to hunt" via a multi-faceted hunting-related skills and strategies experience and then begin hunting on their own, or with the support from family member and friends following the GSO.
Potential hunts, although not guaranteed, may/might follow the GSO workshop, but are largely dependent on conservation partner support (i.e., experienced hunter volunteers) with dates/times TBD and individuals must complete the GSO workshop to be eligible….no exceptions.
Questions regarding hunting license requirements contact NCWRC Customer Service Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. @ 888-248-6834 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Question: I’m an experienced hunter wanting to register a family member for a GSO. Can I register my family member?
Answer: No. Individuals who have hunting family members already have readily available access to a hunting mentor. GSOs are intended for individuals lacking social support via a readily available hunting mentor.
Question: I’m an experienced hunter wishing to donate my experience, time and effort at GSOs. Can I assist with a GSO Workshop?
Answer: Yes. Building a pool of volunteer instructors/assistants is critical to GSO expansion. Individuals interested in assisting as instructors with GSOs will be required to “shadow” during a pre-workshop training session before becoming a GSO instructor.
Question: I’m an inexperienced, new hunter and want to learn more so I can mentor my own family and friends. Can I attend the GSO Workshop?
Answer: Yes. GSO Workshops offer new, inexperienced hunters a mentor experience while encouraging continued mentoring of family members and friends beyond the workshop.
Question: I’ve never hunted and want to learn more before I begin hunting. Can I attend the GSO Workshop?
Answer: Yes. GSO Workshops offer individuals interested in hunting a mentor experience in the absence of an existing mentor.
