Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is offering a hunter education class April 22-28 in Butte at the Highlands College of Montana Tech. The class is free and is required for most people to hunt in Montana.

Classes are held in the evenings Monday through Friday and an outdoor field exercise will be held Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Online registration for the class is required. Students may register online at the Montana FWP website – 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 on the first night.

All 10 chapters in the hunter safety manuals must be completed and all four rules of gun safety on the back of the manuals must be memorized before the first night of class or the students cannot take the course. Hunter education manuals can be picked up at Bob Wards, Three Bears, Murdoch’s and the FWP office in Butte.
