Federal Heights, CO --( The International Hunter Education Association–United States of America (IHEA-USA) has named Steve Hall as its new executive director.

Hall is an IHEA-USA life member and an ardent supporter of hunter education and the shooting sports. He retired after a 26-year career with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department in January 2011. Since then, he has been the executive director of the Texas State Rifle Association. Hall’s volunteer work includes serving as IHEA president (1993-1995) and vice president and chair of the hunter education standards national team in 1999. In addition, he has served as board vice president of the National Bowhunter Education Foundation and has been a board member since 1998. He has been certified as a hunter education instructor in Colorado and Texas and inducted into the IHEA and Texas Hunter Education Halls of Fame.

Hall grew up in Colorado and met his wife Karen of 25 years at Colorado State University where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in wildlife biology. Hall and his wife have a son, Ryan, 21, who attends Texas Tech University. Their daughter, Sarah, 16, is a student at Bowie High School in Austin, Texas. Hall loves to fly fish, bow hunt, and shoot, but he is most passionate about teaching young people about firearms, hunting, safety, responsibility, the outdoors and conservation.

“IHEA-USA is fortunate to have someone as knowledgeable, hard working, and well respected as Steve Hall for its new executive director,” said John McKay IHEA-USA president. “Steve brings a wealth of experience and vision that will assist and guide IHEA-USA and its member agencies in their critical roles of delivering hunter education to new hunters today and into the future.”

IHEA-USA is the professional association for 50 state wildlife conservation agencies and the 70,000 volunteer instructors who teach hunter education in the U.S. Hunter education classes reach more than 750,000 students annually. Since 1949, more than 35 million students have been trained. Courses cover firearm safety, bowhunting, wildlife management, field care of game, responsible hunting, landowner relations, wildlife identification, and much more.
