LAUREL — A week-long hunter education class is scheduled at Laurel for September. Certified volunteers will teach the free Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks class, which are required for most people to hunt in Montana.

The class starts with a mandatory a 6:30 p.m. registration and orientation session on Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018, and includes five evenings of classes from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sept. 10-14 and a Saturday outdoor field exercise Sept. 15.

Laurel classes are held in the high school building with the field day location announced during classes.

Online registration for the class is encouraged. Students may register online at the Montana FWP web site – http://fwp.mt.gov and follow the links to education, “hunter education programs” and “find a class.” Students must be at least 10 years old to register. Students younger than 18 years old must bring a parent or guardian to the orientation and registration session. And all students must attend all classes and the field day.

Anyone born after Jan. 1, 1985, must complete a hunter education class or qualify as a youth apprentice hunter before purchasing a Montana hunting license.
