HARRISBURG, PA — Recently, the sale of firearms and ammunition in the U.S. has reached an all-time high, and because of a tax on firearms, this has resulted in significant increases in funding available to wildlife agencies.
In response to the growth of these federal dollars, the Pennsylvania Game Commission has announced two new employment opportunities within the agency’s Hunter Education and Outreach Division.
As part of a new five-year Wildlife and Sport Fisheries Restoration grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the agency is expanding its hunter education; hunter recruitment, retention and reactivation; and shooting sports outreach efforts.
The first position is for a new Hunter Education Specialist. This is a contract position.
The second is for a new Wildlife Conservation Education Specialist (Shooting Sports Coordinator), which is a three-year, limited-term position.
To learn more about these and other employment opportunities, go the Game Commission’s website at www.pgc.state.pa.us . On the toolbar located at the top of the homepage, hover over the “About Us” tab.
