All license- buying conservationists can participate in this program (hunters, anglers and trappers) since it applies to any first-time buyer purchase across all types. Once three first-time buyers identify the same mentor as their recruiter for any hunting, angling or trapping license, GoWild will offer the mentor a recruiter license.
