Hunter Education Class Announcement
FOR ANTIGO TIMES
Antigo, WI- Upcoming hunter education classes in the Antigo area will allow young and new hunters an opportunity to become hunter education and bow hunter education certified.
All hunters born after 1973 are required to pass a hunter education class. Bow hunter education is not required to hunt in Wisconsin, but some states do require this for archery hunting in their states.
The regular hunter education class will be held April 3rd from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.; April 4th form 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on April 6th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Antigo Bow Club, located at 1112 Mendlik Ave, Antigo.
The cost for this class is $10. In conjunction with this hunter education class is a bow hunter education class, which will be held April 7th from 8:30 a.m.to 3:30 p.m. To be eligible for this class, attendance in a hunter education class is a prerequisite. The bow hunter class is also $10.
The bow hunter education class is taught as a companion to the hunter education class, which allows it to be taught in less time than normal. As a stand-alone class, it would be at least 10 hours.
Interested students can stop at the Antigo Department of Natural Resources office, 223 Steinfest Road from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday to register, submit payment, and receive classroom materials. If interested students are unable to make it during office hours, they can contact Carrie Bean at 715-623-4190 ext. 3104 to make arrangements.
Anyone with questions may feel free to contact the lead instructor, Conservation Warden, Tim Otto at 715-623-4190 ext. 3132.
