Hunter safety course planned
An Illinois Department of Natural Resources, IDNR, hunter safety education course is planned Aug. 12-13 at the Main Street Center in Anna.
Hours for the course are from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Aug. 12 and from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 13. Students must attend both classes.
A 1996 state law requires all hunters born on or after Jan. 1, 1980, to successfully complete a hunter education course before they can receive their first hunting license.
Those who complete the course receive a hunter education certification card. The card verifies that they have passed the course of instruction.
Those who plan to take the course will be asked to provide their Social Security number at the time of the class.
To preregister or for more information about the course, call 618-697-0286.
