Working to Recruit, Retain, and Reactivate Hunters

Georgia Wildlife Federation welcomes new staff member Charles Evans. Charles will serve as R3 Coordinator, a position dedicated to the recruitment, retention and reactivation (R3) of hunters and shooters. In this role, Charles will develop and implement a plan that engages state agencies, conservation organizations and other stakeholders to increase the effectiveness of outdoor education and mentored hunting opportunities for people of all ages, genders and abilities. Charles first partnered with GWF in 2016 under a different R3 contract where GWF simply leased office space. We are thrilled to now have him officially on the GWF roster.

Charles is a Georgia native with deep outdoor roots. From a young age, he has been an avid sportsman and conservationist. Charles earned his wildlife biology bachelor and master’s degrees from University of Georgia’s Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources.

Partnering in this project with GWF are the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division, National Wild Turkey Federation, Quality Deer Management Association, and Safari Club International.
