Sign Up for Hunter Education Soon, Classes Filling Quickly

Des Moines, Iowa — September 20, 2011

Iowa’s 2011 hunter education classes are filling quickly and with few classes remaining attendees are encouraged to sign up before there is a waiting list.

Hunter education classes are taught by volunteer instructors who are also hunters so classes are typically not held after Nov. 15.  To locate and register for a class, go to www.iowadnr.gov/training.

Iowa law requires all persons born after Jan. 1, 1972 to successfully complete a hunter education class in order to purchase a hunting license.  A person as young as 11 years old may take the class, but the certificate of completion will be valid on their 12th birthday.

For more information, contact Megan Wisecup, recreational safety programs supervisor, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, 515-281-8652.
