Hunter safety class added in Clark County

VANCOUVER, WA - A large number of young hunters in the Clark County area has prompted the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) to schedule an additional hunter education class there in October.

Successful completion of a hunter education course is a state requirement for hunters born after Jan. 1, 1972 who are seeking their first license. The program is funded through federal excise taxes on the sale of firearms, ammunition and some archery equipment.

The added class takes place on the following dates:

  • Oct. 5, from 6 to 9 p.m.
  • Oct. 7, from 6 to 9 p.m.
  • Oct. 9, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Oct. 11, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Classes will be held at the WDFW Southwest Washington regional headquarters, 2108 Grand Boulevard, in Vancouver. In addition there will be a shooting-range practice day Oct. 9 at Woverton Mountain Gun Club in Cougar.

Students must pre-register by calling WDFW at (360) 696-6211.

For general information on the hunter education program and a complete list of classes statewide visit on the WDFW website.
