Hunter education class free for the public

By Sarah Pridgeon
The Wyoming Game and Fish Department will offer a Hunter Education and Safety class at the end of the month, free of charge to the general public. Any person who is interested in achieving hunter certification is welcome to attend, says Ed Mignery.
“This class is free to the general public because of sponsorship by the Sundance Rod and Gun Club, generous volunteer instructors and supervision provided by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department,” he says.
The class will teach outdoor and firearm safety for future hunters and non-hunters alike. For most hunters, it is now the law to hold a Hunter Safety Certification Card.
The class will begin on March 31 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Crook County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall in Sundance. It will continue on April 1, 2, 3 and 7, 8, 9 and a test will be administered during the final class for certification.
Pre-registration can be found on the Wyoming Game and Fish Department website in the Education section. Completing this easy and “self-guiding” process will generate your sportsperson ID#, which is now a requirement for attending any Wyoming Hunter Education Course.
Walk-ins without pre-registration will be accepted on the first two evenings of the course, after which the online registration and ID number will be accomplished, says Mignery.
For further information about the course, contact Mignery on 283-2209 or Doug Ramsey on 290-2901.
