The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources will conduct a hunter education class from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Sept. 10 to 12 at the Buckhannon Armory.
Students must attend all hours of all sessions of the course and pass a written and hands-on examination to be certified.
In 1994, West Virginia passed legislation requiring any person born on or after Jan. 1, 1975, to present proof of certification from an approved hunter education course to a license agent to purchase a hunting license.
The course is open to the public and is free of charge. Children younger than 12 must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or responsible adult. Students must be 10 years of age to receive permanent certification. Students who are 8 and 9 years of age will receive a temporary certification.
Class size is limited to 45 students, so pre-registration is required. Anyone who would like to register can call Nancy at the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources District 3 office at 304-924-6211.
