There are 40 seats available for this course, which is open to anyone ages 10 or older. Students must be 10 by March 8 to enroll. There is no cost to participate, and materials are provided. Registrants must pick up a Hunter Education manual from FWP headquarters during business hours by March 1. They must read the manual and complete chapter review questions prior to attending class.
On Friday, March 8, class runs from 6-8 p.m. Adults of minor students are encouraged to attend the first evening. On Saturday and Sunday, class will be 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Students should plan to bring lunches on Saturday and Sunday.
There will be a field day exercise on Sunday, typically at nearby Spotted Eagle Recreation Area. Students must arrange for a ride to and from the location.
