O’FALLON, Mo.— Missouri’s hunter education program (HED) is administrated by the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) and taught statewide by more than 1,400 instructors. Each year, the Department recognizes instructors whose efforts exceed their regular teaching duties. This year, that top honor goes to a St. Louis area instructor.
David Cantoni of O’Fallon was awarded the distinction of being named MDC’s 2015 Missouri State Hunter Education Instructor of the Year. The award is considered the highest honor among Missouri HED instructors.
