Friday, January 07, 2000Handling firearms safely, wildlife conservation, laws and sportsmanship will be some of the topics covered in a Hunter Education class offered for adult women. The class will be March 31 through April 2 at the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch west of Dupuyer.
At the class, which begins Friday evening and concludes Sunday afternoon, participants will have an opportunity to shoot rifles and shotguns and take part in field exercises simulating a hunting experience.
The class is taught by certified Hunter Education Instructors and is sponsored by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks' "Becoming an Outdoors-Woman" program. Participants will receive their Hunter Education certificates upon successful completion of the class.
The class is free but a fee of $85 will be charged to cover food and lodging. For more information on the workshop, call FWP's Liz Lodman in Helena at (406) 444-2615, or e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
