Kids’ hunter safety class coming up in Summit County
Ryan Summerlin January 27, 2012
Summit County 4-H is hosting a Division of Parks and Wildlife Hunter Safety Education course on Saturdays, Feb. 4 and 11.
Held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. both days at County Commons in Frisco, the class is open to all children – they don’t have to be in 4-H – to learn rifle, .22, shotgun and archery safety.
Youth must be at least 8 years old, and be able to read, comprehend and pass the written test. All kids must have an adult, parent or guardian participating with them during the classes. On Feb. 11, the afternoon will be spent at the County Landfill Shooting Range. Parents will need to drive to the range.
All participants must bring a sack lunch or be able to get lunch in the 45-minute break.
Pre-registration is required by contacting Kathie Kralik at email@example.com. A $5 fee covers ammunition and snack expenses.
All participants should prepare for the course using the free, online course materials at http://ihea.com/hunter-education/online-courses.php. Hunter education books are also available – at one per family – outside the Summit County 4-H office in County Commons, near the Frisco library.
