Lowell Hoy Presented Wildlife Award
Hunter Education Instructor Retires after 32 years
FINDLAY, OH – Hunter Education Instructor Lowell Hoy was presented the Wildlife Award by Allen County Wildlife Officer Craig Barr during Hoy’s last Hunter Education course, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.
Hoy has been a volunteer Hunter Education Instructor for 32 years, teaching 6 courses a year.
“Volunteer instructors, such as Hoy, are an integral part of the Division of Wildlife’s Outdoor Education program. Without them we wouldn’t be able to meet the demand for hunter education classes,” according to Linda Ringer, Outdoor Skills Officer.
Hoy is an avid hunter and fisherman, and is especially fond of squirrel hunting. Hoy still runs the Allen County 4-H club he started over 35 years ago. He is retired from Findlay Implement and enjoys spending time with his children and many grandchildren.
The Wildlife Award is presented, by the Division of Wildlife, for distinguished service in conservation of Ohio’s wildlife resources.
