The WV Division of Natural Resources will hold a Hunter Education Class in Clay County at the Clay Middle School on September 7, 2013 from 9am-5pm and September 8, 2013 from 1pm-6pm. Students must attend all hours of both days of the 10 hour course and pass a written and hands-on test to be certified.
In 1994 West Virginia passed legislation that requires any person born on or after January 1, 1975 must present proof of certification from an approved Hunter Education course to the license agent to purchase a base hunting license.
The course is open to the public and is free of charge. Students must be 10 years of age by the final day in order to receive permanent certification. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or responsible adult.
Class size is limited to 45 students, so pre-registration is required. If you would like to register, please contact Nancy at the WV DNR District 3 office at 304-924-6211 Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.
