Hunter education planned in Seligman

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

The City of Seligman will sponsor a hunter education course Oct. 18 though Oct. 20 at the Seligman City Hall. The courses will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. on Oct. 18 and 19, and from 8 a.m. to noon on Oct. 20.

The course will offer information on gun safety training, the role of a hunter and hunting in wildlife management and conservation, firearms and ammunition, outdoor ethics and hunter preparedness.

Once the course has been successfully completed, the students will receive  a Missouri Heritage Card from the Missouri Department of Conservation. In many states and Canadian Provinces, this certification is necessary to purchase a hunter's permit.

Certification for this class is limited to 30 students, 11 years old or older, and the class will be cancelled if less than 10 students are pre-registered.

According to statistics, people who have participated in hunter education training are less likely to be a victim of firearm or hunting accidents.

Student's participating in this training course will be required to bring their Social Security, if they have one, and students under 16 years of age must bring proof of their age.

To pre-register for this course call 342-6554 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.

For more information on hunter education training contact Brian Nichols at 342-6554 or 417-662-3600.
