The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is sponsoring a Sept. 29 bowhunting class for serious archers.

The class runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Tallahassee Bowhunters Club, approximately one half-mile north of Capital Circle off Springhill Road in Tallahassee.

"The purpose of this class is to provide advanced instruction to the bowhunter on such topics as the fundamentals of bowhunting, safety, hunting techniques, stalking, trailing and sportsmanship," said David Crosariol, regional hunter safety officer.

"Also, even though it is not required in Florida, completion of a bowhunting class is required in at least 14 other states before a hunter can purchase a bowhunting license."

Participants should dress for hunting and bring their own archery equipment, including bows and arrows (field points or target points), a lawn chair, pen or pencil and a packed lunch.

Persons interested in attending this course can register online and obtain information about future bowhunting classes at MyFWC.com/huntered or by calling FWC's regional office in Panama City at (850) 265-3676.
