Hunter education conclusion class set

By Don Volger
Special to The SUN

The hunter education conclusion class will be held Saturday June 14, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., at Town Hall, 551 Hot Springs Blvd.

Students must complete the approved online material before attending the conclusion class.

There is no charge except the fee required to obtain the Internet course certificate of completion, which varies depending on the course chosen.

The Internet-based hunter education course requires successful completion of an approved online curriculum plus four hours of classroom instruction, not including the test and range time. There are four online courses approved by Colorado Parks and Wildlife, but we strongly encourage you to use huntercourse.com. Proof of online course completion (the certificate) must be submitted when students arrive on Saturday, June 14, or they will not be admitted.

We will not break for lunch. Students should bring a lunch and snacks to eat during the class. Dress appropriately for the weather since we will finish outdoors, at the range site.

This is a great course for younger students, and parents will benefit as they spend time with their son or daughter working through the online material prior to the conclusion class.

You must preregister and complete the Internet portion of the course before March 15. To register, go to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife official site (wildlife.state.co.us/hunting) and click on “Hunter Education.” Once there, click on “find a course at a place and time to fit your schedule” at the top of the page and simply follow the directions.

If you were born on or after Jan. 1, 1949, you are required to have a hunter safety card before purchasing a hunting license.

All programs, services and activities of the Colorado Parks and Wildlife are operated in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you need accommodation due to a disability or have additional questions, please contact Don Volger at 264-2197 or ddvolger@gmail.com.

These courses are sponsored by the Pagosa Springs Police Department in conjunction with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, with support from the local chapter of the Friends of the NRA.
