The minutes from the September 1960 meeting read

 "During a discussion of the necessity of new hunters passing a proficiency test before qualifying for a license on or after October 1st, on a motion of Richard Craft, duly seconded, the club authorized the formation of a firearms use instruction committee which will recruit and instruct other teachers of "the functions and requirements of the proper use and handling of firearms and related matters of safety and sportsmanship." Named on the committee were Dr. Richard Craft, Dick McDole, Rex Walters, Don Sherry and Roger Fredenburgh. Thus began our long history of training young sportsmen in the proper handling of firearms.

Through the years the program has slowly expanded in the use of visual aids, expanded shooting opportunities and practice, more experienced instructors and lengthened teaching time in order to graduate the best prepared shooter and hunter we can.

The donation of firearms, the financial support of the parent club and the expansion of our instructor staff are reasons why our classes in the Spring and Fall are so well attended and are being attended into the third generation by many hunter families.

There will be an increased emphasis on upgrading our teaching since the age for a hunting license has been reduced to eleven years old.

We undoubtedly have the largest and best HTS staff in the county, do it by the book with a lot extra thrown in. Come up and visit a class sometime.
