Fall hunter ed class starts soon

The first — and possibly only — official hunter education and gun safety course is set to run Aug. 29-Sept. 10, with class size limited to 25.

Sessions will start promptly at 6 p.m. and run through 8 p.m. each evening at the Grangeville Elks Lodge basement. The classroom is accessible through the alley between the lodge and Cash & Carry Foods.

“It’s important for participants to be on time,” volunteer instructor Kevin Asker said. “Being late will have negative consequences.”

Parents of minors need to attend the first class.

Online preregistration is required, through the Idaho Fish and Game website,

The course is a must-have for hunters born on or after Jan. 1, 1975.

For them, it’s required by Idaho law to complete a Hunter Education Course before buying a hunting license.

Three official courses were offered during the spring.
