In 2017, Lindsey taught two bowhunter education [BHE] classes in which he certified 18 students in the program. Lindsey has been a volunteer BHE instructor for the past eight years. In addition, he taught nine hunter education skills sessions where he helped 145 students become certified.
Scott Sarantakis, a Missouri Department of Conservation [MDC] outdoor skills specialist, said Lindsey also served as a mentor for both youth and adult hunters during managed hunts in 2017.
As the regional BHE winner, Lindsey will be considered for the award on the statewide level.
While it is not required by statewide game regulations, MDC strongly recommends that all archery hunters take the BHE course for their own benefit and many municipalities that allow archery hunting inside their city limits do require BHE certification.
