Hunter safety education course scheduled in Anna
An Illinois Department of Natural Resources, IDNR, hunter safety education course is planned March 15-16 at the First Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Anna. The church is located at 315 South St.
Hours for the course are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. March 15 and from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 16. Students must attend both classes.
A 1996 state law requires all hunters born on or after Jan. 1, 1980, to successfully complete a hunter education course before they can receive their first hunting license.
Those who complete the course will receive a hunter education certification card. The card verifies that they have passed the course of instruction.
The course will include instruction in wildlife management, firearms safety, hunter ethics, game identification, first aid, survival techniques and regulations.
All students must preregister. For more information about the course, or to preregister, contact coordinating instructor LaRue Parr at 618-697-0286.
