On Friday, May 22, Gov. John Hickenlooper signed Senate Bill 226 into law, making Colorado the 38th state to enact legislation implementing the Families Afield program.

SB 226 will allow new hunters at least 10 years of age the opportunity to hunt under the watchful eye of an adult mentor prior to completing a full hunter education course. Apprentice hunting is the hallmark of the Families Afield Program, a joint legislative effort by led by Sportsmen’s Alliance, National Shooting Sports Foundation and National Wild Turkey Federation, as well as Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation and National Rifle Association. It reduce barriers to entering the sport of hunting and increases the number of hunters across the country.

To date, the Families Afield program has been responsible for nearly 1.5 million hunters taking to the field under an apprentice program.

“Colorado has a rich diversity of hunting opportunities for sportsmen, and it is the perfect state to take advantage of the recruitment benefits of an apprentice hunting program,” said Evan Heusinkveld, vice president of government affairs for Sportsmen’s Alliance. “Families Afield continues to be one of the nation’s most successful hunter recruitment programs, and we are looking forward to the positive results the program will bring to Colorado.”

About the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance: The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA) is a 501(c)4 organization and provides direct lobbying and grassroots coalition support to protect and advance the rights of hunters, trappers, anglers and scientific wildlife management professionals. The USSA is the only organization exclusively devoted to combating the attacks made on America’s sportsman traditions by anti-hunting and animal rights extremists
