You’ll See ‘Em In The Woods

“Volunteer hunter education instructors Roy Kinner and Kevin Asker knocked the ball out of the park with the first live hunter education class since COVID,” Idaho Department of Fish and Game district conservation officer George Fischer said of the class that concluded April 17. “Now 15 new hunters are ready to take to the field to continue Idaho’s hunting tradition. For the last year students could take the online version, but it’s just not the same. Our younger students learn by seeing, hearing and doing, and the internet version can’t do that.” IDFG and volunteers like Kinner and Asker run hunter education courses annually at the Elks Lodge in Grangeville, and the courses certify people of all ages are ready to buy their first hunting licenses. Idaho requires hunters ed for those born since Jan. 1, 1975.
