PEI Hunting Workshop


Project Summary:

This animal workshop, held at the Charlottetown Trap & Skeet Club, reaches novice hunters Island-wide. It acts as the "field day" for the Hunter Safety Program, allowing participants who successfully pass the online exam to receive their PEI hunter safety certificate.


A number of volunteer-led stations allow the students to learn safe and proper hunting techniques, as well as the fundamentals of wildlife conservation and hunting ethics.


Topics this year included:

  • Firearm Safety

  • Wilderness Survival

  • Hunting Techniques

  • Conservation Enforcement

  • Conservation & Ethics


In 2020, this event was revamped to meet Provincial COVID-19 restrictions. The project engaged approximately 15 volunteers that helped educate and introduce 45 islanders to the sport of hunting.
