Hunter Safety Class set for Aug. 17-19

ST. CHARLES — The St. Charles Wolverine Sportsmen Club and the Department of Natural Resources will be conducting a hunter safety class for all first-time hunters born on or after Jan. 1, 1960, who have not previously taken a hunter safety class on Aug. 17-19. Anyone who is not 10 years of age will be enrolled on a space-available basis and by how close to 10 years of age they are on the class starting date.

The class schedule is as follows: Tuesday, Aug. 15, 6-8 p.m. registration; Thursday, Aug. 17, 5-9 p.m. class; Friday, Aug. 18, 5-9 p.m. class; Saturday, Aug. 19, noon to 5 p.m. class.

Refreshments will be served on Thursday and Friday, and a lunch will be served on Saturday. A $5 fee is being asked to help offset the food and refreshments that will be served, and the cost of the ammunition for the live firing that will be done on Saturday.

Attendance is required on all three days to be eligible to receive hunter safety certificates. Students are graded in three areas before any certificate is awarded. The three graded areas are test score, classroom attitude and ability to handle firearms safely and responsibly on the firing range.

Girls and foreign exchange students are encouraged to take the hunter safety class. Adults who have not previously taken a hunter safety class are invited to take the class along with their son or daughter. Many states now require a hunter safety certificate regardless of age or previous experience.

Anyone with special needs is requested to contact the club 10 days prior to the class so that necessary arrangements can be made

The class will be held at the St. Charles Wolverine Sportsmen Club, located at 14690 Ithaca Road.
