Who to Contact for Next Steps
Contact your local DNR, fish and game department, or local gun clubs or ranges for next steps. IHEA-USA and state wildlife agencies have websites that are valuable sources of direct information and links to other sites that are of interest to new firearm owners. Continue to explore these as you move forward in your outdoor and shooting life. Join a hunting conservation–focused NGO group, as many of these offer mentor opportunities and additional learning opportunities in a group setting. If you are interested in learning to hunt, your state agency offers opportunities for hunter education as well.
