CORE Program/ PAL Program

The Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Education (CORE) program is useful for anyone interested in outdoor recreation, wildlife, and firearm safety. The CORE programs should be viewed as the foundation for any outdoors recreational user.

The purpose of CORE is to ensure that prospective hunters meet acceptable standards of knowledge and skill for their safe and ethical participation in hunting recreation.

What is hunter education?
Mandatory hunter education began in New York State in 1949. Since then it has become a requirement across North America. In British Columbia hunter education became mandatory in 1974.

coreBecause of hunter education, “hunting is safe and getting safer”. Accident rates have steadily declined and hunters and other outdoors recreational users have become more knowledgeable and skilled. Hunter education has been a very successful safety education program.

The North Peace Rod and Gun Club supports the COREĀ  and PAL programs by running educational classes on a regular basis at the Club facilities.

If you wish to attend the next session or be placed on a waiting list for the next available course, you can call the Rod and Gun Club Office at 250-785-9686 and speak to the Range Manager.
