Registration begins for hunter-education course at Camp Cowles Scout camp on Diamond Lake

SPOKANE – Hunters who need to complete a hunter education course before going afield can do so at a special three-day class Sept. 9-11 at Camp Cowles, a Boy Scouts of America facility on Diamond Lake near Newport.

The course, open to people of all ages, is designed to meet Washington’s hunter-education requirement for all prospective hunters born after Jan. 1, 1972.

A team of volunteer instructors will conduct the course for up to 150 students at the scout camp, located in Pend Oreille County just north of Spokane.

Classes will be held Friday, Sept. 9, from 6:30 to 9 p.m.; Saturday, Sept. 10, from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; and Sunday, Sept. 11, from 8:30 a.m. until the coursework is complete.

Students can now register for the course by calling Chuck Ray, eastside hunter education coordinator for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, at 509-754-4624, ext. 23. In the Newport area, students can register by calling 509-447-2604.

In-person registration will also be available in Spokane from Aug. 20-28 at The General Store, 2424 N. Division St. and at Sharp Shooting Indoor Range and Gun Shop, 1200 N. Freya Way.

Registration for the course costs $20.
