Hunter Education begins next Friday

A Wyoming Game and Fish Department authorized and approved Hunter Education Class is scheduled in Sundance just in time for prospective new hunters to get certified before fall wild turkey season in the Black Hills. Even if you never hunt, the class provides students of all ages valuable information about firearm and archery safety, wildlife management, habitat conservation, outdoor survival, law and regulations, respect and responsibility to wildlife, property owners and hunting companions and much more.

Wyoming law requires virtually all hunters born on or after January 1, 1966 to pass a certified Hunter Education Class and possess a Hunter Education/Safety Card from Wyoming or another state.

The class will be held at the Crook County School District Central Office Gymnasium on October 29 and 30 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

The course is made possible in Sundance by certified volunteer instructors and guest speakers. The Sundance Rod & Gun Club makes the class available at no cost to enrollees and all materials are provided by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. Certification and Hunter Safety Card issuing is administered by the Wyoming Game & Fish Department Hunter Education section.

Pre-registration for the class on the Wyoming Game & Fish web site in encouraged: Wyoming G&F home page/Education/Hunter Safety Courses/Sundance/Enroll. A Sportsman ID # will be generated by each enrollee during their registration process.

However, walk in students are welcome prior to online registration. For additional information, please contact Ed Mignery at 283-2209 or Kyndell Flint at 290-2040.
