Aspiring hunters will soon have the opportunity to take a hunter education course to allow them to obtain their hunting license. Ray Rausch told WKVI that a hunter education class will begin on Saturday, Feb. 8 at the Pulaski County Highway Garage. The 10–12 hour class must be completed for anyone born after Dec. 31, 1986 to obtain a hunting license.
Rausch said the first class is Feb. 8, followed by classes on Feb. 15 and Feb. 22, from 8 a.m. to noon ET.
Those who take the course will receive a student manual with basic information regarding safety, game laws, safety laws, wildlife conservation and preservation, and history. He said the course will also explain black powder equipment, muzzleloaders, ammunition, safe storage of guns at home, archery equipment, and first aid, as well as emergency survival.
The course is free of charge. For more information, visit www.register-ed.com or call Rausch at (574) 946-3858.
