Future Hunters Encouraged To Sign-Up Early

LEWISTON - Lewiston-area youth wanting to hunt next year should plan now to sign-up for one of the two hunter education classes offered this November and December. Because of a recent law change allowing 10-year-old children to hunt small game with an adult, classes are expected to fill-up early.

The Clearwater Region generally educates around 800 youth each year. Adding 9 and 10 year-olds to the equation, over 2,500 students are expected to sign-up for upcoming classes.
"With so many eligible students, some may have a tough time finding a class that will fit their schedule before it's time to go hunting," said Kent Henderson, Clearwater regional hunter education coordinator. "To avoid the rush and to reserve a spot, we encourage those wanting to hunt next year to register early."
Registration for November and December classes in Lewiston will occur from October 20 to October 24 and will be held at IDFG's Clearwater Regional Office, 1540 Warner Avenue. Registration times are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 22.

To guarantee a spot in a class, parents or guardians are required to provide an address, phone number, date of birth and social security number for each student. Cost is $8 per student.

For more information, call IDFG at 799-5010.
