First time hunters in the Clearwater Region interested in pursuing game in Idaho this fall still have a few chances of getting into a mandatory course before the seasons begin.

“There are a few seats still available in courses offered this summer,” said James Reed, hunter education coordinator for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. “Don’t wait; our volunteer instructors only teach a limited number of courses.”

Courses offered in the area include:

– Lewiston: Hunter course, June 3-7. Bow course, July 26 and 27.

– Moscow: Archery course, June 21 and 22. Contact Ralph Keeney at 883-1575 for information.

– Grangeville: Archery course, May 31 and June 1. Clearwater: Hunter course, May 23-25.

Students can view a list of scheduled courses and register online at http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/cms/education/hunter_ed or visit Fish and Game’s regional office.

Anyone born after January 1, 1975, is required to complete a hunter education course if they want to hunt in Idaho. Beginning hunters planning to hunt this fall should register for a course prior to June 30. After that date, the number of courses offered is very limited due to volunteer instructor availability.
