JOHN DAY – A new series of hunter education classes is set to start up next week in Grant County.

The first class will be at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18, in the Grant Union High School library, and might run as long as two-and-a-half hours. Successive classes will be at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 20 and 21, and Monday, Wednesday and Thursday the following week, Feb. 25, 26 and 28.

The cost is $10 per student, a fee which can be waived in some cases.

No one under 18 may hunt wildlife – except on their own land – without successfully completing the course. All ages planning to hunt as nonresidents may be required to have a Hunter Education Card.

Those interested can pre-enroll at Nydam’s Ace Hardware, True Value Hardware, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife office, or any other ODF&W license sales outlet.

For more information, call Bryan Nelson at 541-575-1808, the ODF&W office at 541-575-1167, or Lynn Comini at 541-575-0952.
