YOUTH HUNTER ED COURSE IN COLORADO SPRINGS

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The Colorado Division of Wildlife will hold a hunter education class for youths aged 16-and-under on two consecutive weekends. All youngsters must be accompanied by an adult.

The class takes place in two sessions. The first session is Sunday, Jan. 30 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The second session is Saturday, Feb. 5 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

"This class is geared to youngsters and their parents," said local District Wildlife Manager Steve Cooley. "Adults may take the class as a student or simply come with the youth."

The course teaches how to handle a firearm, outdoor survival skills, wildlife identification, hunting ethics, game care, Colorado hunting laws, and hunter safety.

Students must attend both sessions and pass the final written test and live ammunition shooting exercise in order to be awarded a hunter education certificate. Class will be limited to 40 students.

"Course materials will be provided on the first day," said Cooley. "There is no need to study prior to the class, but students will need to review course materials during the week between classes."

Sessions will take place at the DOW office at 4255 Sinton Road. Call (719) 227-5200 to reserve a spot.
