Registration Set For Hunter Education Classes

Registration for spring and summer rifle and bowhunter education classes in the Magic Valley Region will be held the last week of February and the first week of March. Idaho requires everyone born on or after January 1, 1975, to satisfactorily complete a state-approved rifle hunter education course before they can buy a hunting license. A hunting license must be obtained before applying for controlled hunts. Archers who have not previously held a valid archery permit in Idaho or another state are required to satisfactorily complete an approved bowhunter education course before they are authorized to participate in archery-only hunts. Volunteer instructors teach hunter education classes. Classes are offered at various locations around the region and at varying times. A listing of class dates, times and locations will be available at your registration site. Be sure to sign up at the registration site for the area where you intend to take the course. In other words, Gooding County classes will not be available at either Twin Falls County registration locations. All registration times through the week of February 26 through March 2 are 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Cost for each class is $8.00 per student, payable at time of registration. Students must be at least 11 years old to register. Registration requirements include student's name, address, phone number, date of birth, and social security number.
