Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is offering a hunter education class at the Dillon Middle School on May 7, 8, 13, 14 and 16, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. each night. The class is free and is required for most people to hunt in Montana.
In order to successfully complete the hunter education course, students must attend all five classroom sessions and pass a written test. Field exercises will be completed on school grounds, and students need to be prepared for outdoor activity in cool evening temperatures.
Students must be at least 10 years old to enroll. Class enrollment will be capped at 35 students. Adult, online students seeking a field day must make other arrangements by contacting one of the instructors listed below.
Online registration for the classes is required. Students may register at the Montana FWP website – http://fwp.mt.gov — and follow the links to education, “hunter education programs” and “find a class.” A parental Acknowledgment of Risk Form and a Student Code of Conduct must be downloaded, completed and handed in on May 7. Students will not be admitted to class if these forms are not completed and handed in at the first class.
Students are required to read and answer the quiz questions of the Montana Hunter Education Manual prior to May 7. The manual can be obtained from the Dillon Middle School Office or the FWP office in Dillon at 730 N. Montana St. Students will not be admitted to the class if the assignment is not completed.
Parents are welcome to attend the classes. An additional hunter education course will be offered in August.
