From Atchison to Elkhart, the Kansas hunter education program has reached those in need of certification for decades.

Lately it's been reaching even farther.

"We've had nine (classes) in Iraq and two in Afghanistan," said Wayne Doyle, Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks hunter education coordinator. "We've stretched our borders a little bit."

Doyle said the classes were taught by members of the Army, National Guard and Marine Corps reserves to fellow soldiers. The instructors had been certified to teach while in Kansas. Those who completed the courses will be hunter education certified for any state in the nation.

"Basically we had some guys over there who really wanted to be able to go hunting as soon as they got back," Doyle said. "Now they can."
