Idaho Fish and Game Offers New Online Course for Bowhunter Education


Boise, ID (PRWEB) March 24, 2015

Idaho bowhunters in need of bowhunter education certification now have the option of being certified online. The course is designed to help Idaho bowhunters sharpen their skills and learn safe in-the-field practices.

“The Internet course teaches the same curriculum taught in the bowhunter instructor-led course using the same student manual,” said Brenda Beckley, Hunter Education & Recruitment Manager for the Idaho Fish and Game Department. “This course is another option for our students. Our instructor-led courses will continue to be taught, as they are preferred by some students.”

What is new is that students now can get certified without attending a field day, but they can voluntarily attend the field exercise in an instructor-led course with prior coordination.

The Internet course is a self-paced, interactive teaching platform that accommodates all types of learners. Designed to be a fun and informative presentation of essential safety information, short videos cover topics such as bowhunting methods, tree stand safety and archery practice. The course teaches important skills such as blood trailing and distance estimation.

The Idaho-approved online bowhunter course allows students to study for free, only paying the $ 30 fee after they have successfully passed the final exam. The course was made to fit the learner’s schedule, with progress automatically saved so students can learn at their own pace. The course is also mobile friendly, allowing students to take it at any time using either their computer, smartphone, tablet, e-reader or Internet TV.

The Bowhunter Ed course is the official course of the National Bowhunter Education Foundation.

To become certified, students can complete their bowhunter education at http://www.bowhunter-ed.com/idaho. You must be at least 10 years old and a state resident to take Idaho’s Bowhunter Education course.

How Well Do You Know Your Friends? Social Card Game WHOM, Launching on Kickstarter, Helps You Find Out

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2015

All those postings and photos, but how well can anyone possibly know someone through social media? The engaging social card game WHOM helps answer that. Created by award-winning industry creative Joey Caroni, a team of artists and a ton of late night play sessions, WHOM is a completely new take on card games that pits friends against friends in a game of secrets and big reveals. In WHOM, only the best friends will come out on top.

WHOM has completed pre-production and is now pre-selling the game on Kickstarter.

“WHOM has been in process for a long time and was born from my desire to get to know my friends better,” Joey Caroni said. “WHOM games are always very revealing and result in many funny ‘aha’ moments among friends. At the end of every game, players leave knowing their friends better, and usually being pretty shocked at the results.”

In a high tech world where interactions with friends are largely fleeting and more about, perhaps, what we eat or going to the gym, game nights among friends are seeing a huge resurgence. WHOM is designed to take a typical game night and not only make it incredibly fun but also really insightful. It is the perfect conversation starter and can be played with old and new friends alike. WHOM launched a Kickstarter to meet the minimum quantities needed by their suppliers to ship the card game.

For a $ 25 pledge, Kickstarter backers can get the full game at launch this summer. Each set includes 50 full-color WHOM question cards (4.75 inch x 4.75 inch), a premium magnetic box, card stand and 50-sheet score pad.

WHOM also created some innovative additional rewards for larger pledges, which include the limited WHOM “Selfie Package” where a WHOM artist will draw you directly into a future piece of game art.

Key Features:

Beautifully Illustrated – Original artwork by eight noteworthy and talented artists.
Expansions – Booster decks of 50 additional cards featuring all new art and questions
Bonus Questions – Call out friends in a popular vote to see which one best fits each description
Friend Score – The total number of questions guessed right for a player. Soulmate status or work on that friendship? WHOM shows!
Easy Fun – Hysterical, revealing and downright disturbing fun in four steps.

How to WHOM:

1. Draw a card and read the question and all of the answers out loud.

2. Choose an answer for yourself and make a best guess for each player. Then, write them on the scoresheet.

3. Take turns revealing answers. Each correct answer earns a point!

4. The player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.

In the future, there are plans for a WHOM mobile game (already in development) and other multimedia products, but getting the physical card game to consumers is WHOM’s priority now.
