I couldn't resist getting the first word in here. I'm Dan and I'm a (seasonal) resident of Haines. I was needing an IBEP certification last year and could not find a local instructor so I decided to become one. I am currently in the application process of becoming a hunter ed instructor. I would like to hear from any others who have gone through the process. I would also like to meet any other bowhunters in the Haines borough.
Thank you, David, for providing us with this forum!

I 2 bowhunt...wanted to become an IBEP instructor but they never called me back after numerous times trying to get information on becoming a volunteer instructor...
Bowhunting Ed Instructor
I just finished the class in March and it was a piece of cake. I had class on Friday and by Saturday afternoon, I was finished. You do a little background check, fill out a little paperwork and you are in. I believe you have to have your IBEP before you can become an instructor.
I did get my IBEP last year but I am not an instructor !!!!
I had a one day class here in Homer .
Hope you get yours .
Here's the link to the current schedule.
