A Classroom Hunter Education Course starts Monday, September 9 at the Elizabeth Chapel Baptist Church on Highway 83 or Allen Ferry Road.
Classes will be held each night from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. The course is offered free of charge.
Participants must attend each night in order to complete the course. "There are actually three classroom nights and on the last day, that afternoon we do the test and the LIVE fire. You do have to attend all of those," said TWRA Officer Tony Cross.
"You must be at least nine years old by the first night of the class to participate," he said. "We will take up to fifty persons in the class. You do have to go on-line to register now for any of our Hunter Education classes. Go to the www.tnwildlife.org website. You click on the button "For Hunters". Click on the section "Hunter Education". A button will come up in the middle of the page "Find A Class". Click on that and go to the classroom portion of the Hunter Education Course. Look on the left hand side of the page. It'll bring up the dates. Just look until you find the one that says Elizabeth Chapel Baptist Church. It will then have another button that will allow you to register now," said Officer Cross.
