The next hunter education course in Forks is scheduled to begin Monday evening, March 4 at the West End Sportsmen’s Club. The course dates and times are as follows, March 4,6,11,13 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. The final test is Saturday, March 16 at 9 a.m.
Students must attend all classes for the opportunity to receive a hunter education student certificate. Washington law requires all first time hunters born after January 1, 1972 to successfully complete a hunter education class in order to purchase a hunting license.
Students receive instruction in firearms safety, wildlife conservation and sportsmanship. The course is taught by volunteer instructors who have been certified by the Department of Fish and Wildlife to conduct student courses.
The hunter education program is open to everyone, experienced or not. Most students who successfully complete this course are 10 years old or older. A parent or guardian is required to attend the first night of class with their student and are encouraged to attend all classes. Additionally, if your student is under 10 years old a parent or guardian must accompany them to all classes.
Students must pre-register and can do so by going on-line at the wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/huntered/ web page and follow prompts to Hunter Education class registration. If you have any questions please call Randy at 374-5718.
