By now you have probably noticed the days getting longer, the sun getting warmer and the birds getting louder. Some fishing seasons are already open, and others will be opening soon. Spring turkey seasons are only weeks away, and deer sign from last fall will be there to scout when the snow melts. Do you want to hunt turkeys this year, start scouting for new deer hunting areas, or learn more about catching fish? Would you like to share your knowledge about hunting or fishing with others who are eager to learn? If you answered yes to any of these questions, please join New England BHA’s Mentoring Program.
New England BHA launched its pilot Mentoring Programshortly before the 2018 hunting season. With your participation the chapter will build on the positive responses from mentors and mentees to meet the needs of our rapidly growing membership in 2019. Mentors and mentees will be paired based on interests, skills, and geography, and after that thementoring relationship is determined by the mentor and mentee and time available to each. The interaction between mentor and mentee can be as casual as giving some foundational guidance over the phone or email, being available to answer questions from time to time, or spending time together in the field. The mentoring program is open to all BHA members in New England – if you’re not a member Join Now!
If you’re already a participant, reach out to your mentor or mentee to see how things are going and let us know that you will be active this spring. If you want to get involved as a mentor or mentee, send an email to David Larson at [email protected]and include “mentoring program” in the subject line.
