Kalkomey’s hunter safety video series has been named a bronze winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards education category. The videos are part of the state-approved training at hunter-ed.com as well as being available on menu-driven DVDs for hunter education instructors.
“Our goal in developing this series was to create videos that would be fun for students to watch. We wanted to use humor, where appropriate, to focus the student’s attention on the safety advice,” said Kurt Kalkomey, president of Kalkomey Enterprises, Inc. “We also wanted to avoid being preachy. Our videos are meant to engage students with opportunities to explore and select the best options for staying safe while hunting. This helps students develop true understanding rather than just memorizing the lesson.”
These hunter safety videos serve as a great teaching tool for instructors in the classroom. They cover topics such as firearms safety, tree stand safety, safe zones of fire, effectiveness of blaze orange and more. The videos feature a combination of professional actors, entertaining storylines and up-to-date scenarios that give students another way to learn safe hunting practices.

For its 34th season, the Telly Awards once again joined forces with YouTube to give the public the power to view and rate videos submitted as part of the People’s Telly Awards. In addition, a judging panel of more than 500 accomplished industry professionals evaluated entries against a high standard of merit, recognizing those entries that reflect the highest standard of excellence in their categories.
“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, executive director of the Telly Awards. “Kalkomey’s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great educational video production.”
