JOHN DAY - There are many ways to sign up for Oregon Hunter Education class.
And that's good, since one is coming up in Grant County.
Youth and interested adults can still sign up at the first class and pay their $10 fee there, said coordinator Bryan Nelson.
The next class is set to begin at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 27 at the Grant Union High School library.
The class will continue Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 29 and March 1, and Monday, Wednesday and Thursday the following week, March 5, 7 and 8.
Class registration can be done wherever licenses and tags are sold, as well as ODFW offices, and on the ODFW website, www.dfw.state.or.us/education/hunter/hunter_ed.
A parent or guardian needs to be present on the first night of a youth's class in order to sign a release form, said Nelson.
Young people under the age of 18 must successfully complete the class before a hunting license will be issued. Children as young as 8 have taken it, said Nelson, as long as they have good reading comprehension. The course involves reading and class instruction.
