Donít wait! Attend a hunter education clinic this weekend
ďDonít put off until tomorrow what you can do today.Ē
Whoever coined that phrase was pretty smart, and they also must have had a lot of time on their hands. In todayís world of busy schedules and packed calendars, it is easy to procrastinate. But signing up for a hunter education class is something you certainly do not want to postpone.
ďWith the fall hunting seasons just starting to kick in, this is the perfect time of the year to attend a hunter education class. Right now there are a number of courses scheduled all over the state, but donít wait until it is too late to find one near you," said Lance Meek, hunter education coordinator for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. "With the first youth antlerless youth deer gun season coming up October 17-19, now is the time to get your young hunter in a class."
Approximately 14,000 hunter education students are certified annually at over three hundred courses statewide. To find out more about the hunter education program or to find a course near you, log on wildlifedepartment.com or call (405) 521-4636.
Anyone born on or after January 1, 1972, upon reaching 16 years of age must have completed a certified hunter education course in order to purchase a hunting license. Additionally, any hunters under the age of 16 (below the age required to purchase a hunting license) must complete a hunter education course in order to use a firearm to hunt big game (deer, elk or antelope).
