“NDA’s Field to Fork was one of the finest instructional programs I’ve ever attended. It’s the perfect environment and opportunity for new hunters to gain skills, confidence, mentored guidance, and hands-on experience. I believe it’s the best program available for growing a safe, responsible, and sustainable hunting community, of which I am now proud to be a part.”  —Greg Clarke, Pennsylvania
