Hunter safety education course scheduled in Anna
An Illinois Department of Natural Resources, IDNR, hunter safety education course is planned Friday and Saturday, April 9-10, at the First Evangelical Presbyterian Church’s Main Street Center in Anna. The church is located at 315 South St.
Hours for the course are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on April 9 and from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 10. Students must attend both classes.
Masks will be mandatory for those who attend the course.
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 will receive a hunter education certification card. The card verifies that they have passed the course of instruction.
Participants will be asked to provide their Social Security number at the time of the class.
The course will include instruction in wildlife management, firearms safety, hunter ethics, game identification, first aid, survival techniques and regulations.
