Arkansas Northeastern College to offer hunters education

Thursday, July 18, 2013

The Department of Community Education of Arkansas Northeastern College will offer Hunters Education on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 5-7, from 5:30--9 p.m. The class will meet on the ANC Blytheville campus. The class is free and registration is required.

Hunters born after 1968 must carry a valid Hunter Education card. A card is also required of youth applicants for permit hunts. Youngsters (under 16 years) under the direct supervision of a licensed adult (over 21 years) do not need to have a card.

The Arkansas Hunter Education Program is dedicated to the sportsmen of Arkansas with a central theme of safety and sportsmanship. The program is structured to acquaint students with the many wildlife oriented recreational opportunities and recreational shooting sports available to them. The program is administered through the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and taught through a corps of trained volunteer and professional instructors. Hunter ethics and responsibilities, survival and first aid, conservation and wildlife management, firearm safety, muzzle loader, archery, and tree stand safety will be covered.

Persons with questions may contact the instructor, Rickie Gallant-870-532-7022.

To register, call Mary Ann Garren, Department of Community Education of Arkansas Northeastern College at (870) 762-3168 or email mgarren@smail.anc.edu.
