Deadline Approaching for Hunter Education Course in Eastern Sierra

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is now registering participants for the last hunter certification classes of the season in Inyo and Mono counties. The class is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014, from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Bishop Civic Center’s Counsel. The deadline to register is Jan. 11.

The class is for those who have already completed the online portion of the mandatory hunter education course to receive a hunting license. Inyo and Mono county residents who want to obtain their hunting license may complete the basic study portion online at their own pace, followed up by the four-hour certification class with wildlife officers. To register for the online portion of the course, please go to 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 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 must pre-register for the follow-up class. Registration closes one week prior to the class. To register, please contact Warden Shane Dishion at (760) 920-7593.
