Although hunting seasons remain several months away, spring hunter education and bowhunter education classes are now forming. Because of high interest and limited space, participants are urged to register during upcoming registration sessions. On Wednesday, January 24, Nampa/Caldwell area hunter education class registration will be held at Fish & Game's Southwest Region office, 3101 S. Powerline Road in Nampa. Register for classes from 12:00 noon to 2:30 p.m. and 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. On Wednesday, January 31, Boise/Meridian area hunter education class registration will be held at the Hunter Education Center, 109 W. 44th Street in Garden City. Register for classes from 12:00 noon to 2:30 p.m. and 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. By state law, persons born after December 31, 1974 must attend and successfully complete a hunter education course before purchasing an Idaho hunting license. Hunter education course fees are $8.00 per person. "For registration purposes, we'll need a social security number and the eight dollar fee for every person desiring to take a class," Fish and Game wildlife educator Dan Papp said. "Parents do not need to bring their children to the registration. In fact, if you're tied up that day and simply can't make it to registration, ask a friend who might be coming down to register for you." Although not required, parents are encouraged to attend classes with their children and participate in the entire program.
