West-central Montana hunter and bowhunter education volunteer instructors have been honored for their years of service.

The volunteers run the hunter safety courses that provide prospective hunters and young hunters classes on safety, ethics, conservation and handling of firearms and archery equipment.

Many of those instructors are from the Bitterroot Valley. They are:

  • 35 years of teaching hunter courses: Vern Shreve of Florence
  • 15 years of teaching hunter courses: Don Cole of Darby and Jim Waliser of Hamilton
  • 5 years of teaching hunter courses: Danny Johnston of Darby, Jessica Stevens of Stevensville and Patrick Ahlin of Stevensville
  • 5 years of teaching bowhunter courses: Chris Toynbee of Darby and Toby Walrath of Corvallis
  • In west-central Montana, about 150 volunteers instruct nearly 2,000 students each, according to Vivaca Crowser of the Montana FWP.

    Awards were handed out at a luncheon and workshop Saturday at the Lolo Creek Steakhouse.

    For information on becoming a Hunter and Bowhunter Education Instructor, call Vivaca Crowser at the Region 2 FWP Office on Spurgin road in Missoula at (406) 542-5518.
