Instructor Resources

VHEA has created an on-line forum specifically for connecting with Virginia Hunter Education Instructors.  It’s a great way to voice opinions, discuss ideas, solve problems and otherwise communicate with your local teaching peers.  

 

To get started contact the forum administrator at teamfse1@aol.com and provide your full name, Instructor ID # and desired user name. Your account will be set up for you and a temporary login will be sent to you.

CABELA’S

VHEA is set-up with Cabela’s for discounts on products purchases for hunter education use only and NOT for personal use.  Orders are screened based on products purchased.  If this is abused, VHEA will lose the discount privilege.

 

VHEA is currently a “level 1 account”.  Discounts are based on volume of sales and will vary from 0-10% based on the product. If as an organization we purchase over $5,000.00 annually we will change to “level 2” and can receive up to a 15% discount.  In the event of a sale, you will be charged whichever is lower – sale price or discount.

 

To place an order, call 800-242-1596. 7 AM – 7 PM Monday - Friday CST.  Internet orders will not recognize the discount code, so orders must be called in.  In-store purchases are possible through the Customer Service desk.  For all orders provide the VAHEA account number 56625076 at the beginning of your order.  The main account mailing address is 1267 4-H Camp RD Appomattox, VA 24522; you will be asked to provide a different address for shipping purposes.
