Hunter education class set to begin

A Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency endorsed hunter education class will be held at Erwin Town Hall March 5-9.

For those who pass the course’s written exam, a live firing exercise will be held on Saturday, March 10, at the Sciota Firing Range in Unicoi. Every person born on or after Jan. 1, 1969, before hunting, must possess, in addition to all other licenses and permits required, proof of satisfactory completion
of an agency approved hunter safety course. Also, individuals born on or after Jan. 1, 1969, must
possess proof of successful completion of a hunter education class before hunting in Tennessee.
Children under 10 years of age do not need a hunter education certificate, but must be accompanied by an adult at least 21 years of age. The adult is required to remain in position to take immediate control of the hunting device.

Anyone wishing to participate in the class must be at least nine years old. Students should bring their Social Security number to the class for registration.

Class will be taught by instructor Jerry Hopson and will begin at 6 p.m. each night. For more information, call 743-8754.
