Eleven students complete Hunter Education

A class of 11 students recently completed the Wyoming Game and Fish Department Hunter Education Class held in Sundance. This class involves about 17 hours of class instruction, marksmanship, gun handling and the passing of a written test.

The class is offered free of charge in Sundance with sponsorship by the Sundance Rod and Gun Club, books and materials by the Wyoming Game and Fish Dept., facilities provided by the Crook County Fair Board and time donated by several certified volunteer instructors. Special sessions were given by local game warden Chris Teter and by Terry Everard.

The Hunter Education/Safety Card awarded after the successful completion of the class is required in Wyoming for holders of hunting licenses, hunting with a firearm, who were born on or after Jan. 1, 1966.
