Hunter safety course to be held in September
Area residents will have an opportunity to learn basic principles of safe hunting at a Department of Natural Resources hunter safety course scheduled at the location listed below: First Southern Baptist Church, 426 Maple Avenue, Rushville, on Sept. 22 and 23 from 6 to 9 p.m. and Sept. 24 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
A 1996 state law requires that all hunters born on or after Jan. 1, 1980, successfully complete the hunter education course before they can receive their first hunting license. Participants completing the hunter education course receive a Hunter Education Certification card verifying that they have passed the course of instruction. Participants should provide their Social Security Number at the time of class.
