Conservation agent Mark Henry announced this week that a Hunter Education class will be offered here on Saturday April 2, from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The class will be held at the Ava Middle School cafeteria. It is mandatory to attend the whole day.
There is no pre-registration necessary. Students will not need to bring any items with them. Books and pencils will be provided.
The class will break for lunch at noon. Parents are welcome to pick up the students or they can bring a lunch.
Included in the training will be gun safety, information about firearms and ammunition, the role of the hunter, wildlife management and conservation, responsibilities of the outdoors person, outdoor ethics and Missouri laws.
Those successfully completing the course will receive a hunter education certification card from the Department of Conservation. Such certification is mandatory before a hunter can purchase a hunting license in many states. Certification is limited to student’s 11 years of age or older.
