Hunting safety class starts Monday

The fall hunter education class necessary to get a hunting license will be held at Summit Middle School from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Sept. 29-0ct. 3.

This is a Monday through Friday class. Friday will be spent at the gun range followed by the test. Certification cards will be issued. If possible, people should come to the range earlier than 6:30 p.m. for more daylight.

The class fee is $10, and registration will be taken on the first evening of class. All sessions must be attended. Passing the class is required for all who wish to obtain a Colorado hunting license.

There is no theoretical lower age for a license, but the ability to handle a gun and pass a written test often makes it hard to pass if under age 9 or 10.

Parents should sit through the sessions if a young child is taking the class. For information, call Dr. Greg Jungman at (970) 468-6139.
