With hunting season just a few weeks off, time is running short for students to take a hunter education class.
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is currently offering classes in Twin Falls, Filer, Buhl, Rupert, Jerome, Hailey, and Kimberly; most classes begin within the next two weeks, and seating is limited so students are urged to register as soon as possible.
Students interested in registering for a class are asked to stop by the Idaho Fish and Game Regional Office between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. The office is located at 319 South 417 East, Highway 93 Business Park (2.5 miles north of the Flying J truck stop).
Registration requires an address, phone number, date of birth, and social security number for each student. Cost is $8 per student.
Students completing the class will receive a free small game hunting license for this year's hunting season. Students 12 and older wishing to hunt big game this fall must upgrade to a junior hunting license. Cost for the upgrade is $3.50 at any Idaho Department of Fish and Game Regional Office or for $6.50 at other license vendors.
