Montana Hunter Advancement Program
Ethics, Access, and Education
The Montana Hunter Advancement Program promotes safe, ethical, and responsible hunting through its focused “Master Hunter” certification program, offered in partnership with forward-thinking private landowners across the state.
25 Montana hunters have successfully completed our first-ever 50+ hour continuing education course, passing an exhaustive written exam and a field marksmanship and ballistics course led by Jason & Jordan at 406 Precision.
These dedicated individuals are ready for hunting season this coming fall and beyond, as we build our team of ethical hunters. These folks are on a mission to improve landowner – sportsmen relations in Montana!
How you can help:
• Refer a landowner to our program. We are actively seeking out additional access partnerships.
• Make a contribution. Every penny counts as we continue building this first-of-its-kind advanced hunting education, ethics, and access program.
• Tell your friends. We will soon be accepting applications for the 2019 course opportunities

The Common Ground group believes that hunting is a privilege and not a right; and although it has been criticized by some, it is an important part of our Nation’s heritage and wildlife management system. As both land ownership and hunter behavior have changed, hunting access has become more limited and contentious. In an attempt to improve landowner-sportsmen relations as well as create more access opportunities for hunters, Common Ground is now developing this comprehensive, advanced hunter education program designed to put more ethical, educated, and effective hunters in the field.
