Bryant Will Recognized by DOW

Colorado Division of WildlifeLamar resident and longtime Division of Wildlife employee, Bryant Will, was recently awarded with the 2010 Southeast Region Hunter Education Instructor of the Year Award.

The presentation states, “According to our records, you began your DOW career in 1975, teaching well over 1,500 students as a DWM.  Since becoming a Master after retirement in 2008, you have increased that number substantially.  Most of the work you’ve done for hunter ed has been behind the scenes without recognition, but the following nomination from Rod Johnson is very impressive.”

That nomination letter reads in part, “Bryant continues to organize and make Hunter Education classes available in the area.  He was instrumental in the initial recommendation to acquire the old National Guard Armory in Lamar for the Division of Wildlife office which was desperately needed.  This also provides a permanent qualify classroom for Hunter Education.  Bryant has always been conscientious about making sure training aids were available at classes throughout the area, then returned and accounted for.  While A DWM, he worked diligently to gather numerous old class rosters from any source he could find and get them loaded into the system.  For all his past and continuing efforts, I think Bryant is very well deserving of this award.”

The award letter from Mark Cousins, DOW Hunter Education Coordinator concludes, “Thanks for all you have done for hunter education and for remaining active in the program.  You are continuing to pass on the hunting heritage and your life work in an important part of the state.”
