The California Department of Fish and Wildlife Law Enforcement Division is offering a pair of hunter certification classes in Inyo and Mono counties that will allow residents who have already completed a portion of the mandatory hunter education course online to receive a hunting license.
This will allow residents of Mono and Inyo counties to complete the basic study portion online at their own pace, followed up by a four-hour certification class with wildlife officers.
To register and take the online portion of the course, go to http://www.huntercourse.com/usa/california/
After completing the online course and receiving a passing test score, a $24.95 fee will be charged for a completion voucher. Applicants will need to bring this document to the final certification class in order to receive a final hunter education certificate.
The four-hour follow-up class consists of two hours of review, one hour of gun handling techniques and one hour for the hunter education test. Applicants who completed the online portion of the class must pre-register for the follow-up class. Registration closes one week prior to the class. These will be the only follow-up courses give for this year’s hunting season.
Two classes are scheduled for the Eastern Sierra;
- Mono County – July 20, 2013 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Mammoth Lakes Fire Station #1
- Inyo County – August 3, 2013 from noon to 4 p.m. at the Bishop Civic Center’s Counsel
