CARLSBAD, N.M. -(Ammoland.com)- The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is offering a special hunter education camp where youths can receive hands-on training and earn their hunter education certification.

The camp is open to youths ages 11 to 18 who are accompanied by a responsible adult. It will be conducted the weekend of March 31 – April 2 at historic Camp Washington Ranch near Carlsbad.

Lodging and meals are free and all equipment is provided. Registration for the camp opens Feb. 27. Participants must complete and return the registration form available on their website by 5 p.m., March 8, to be eligible.

Slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

The department is hosting the camp in partnership with New Mexico Youth Conservation Foundation and Safari Club International Foundation.

Participants will learn safe and responsible firearms handling, ethical hunting behaviors, conservation, wildlife identification and basic survival skills. Participants will test their marksmanship skills with .22 rifles and archery on a range under the supervision of certified hunter education instructors and department staff.
