JOHN DAY – A series of hunter education classes will start July 6 at the Old West Federal Credit Union conference room in John Day.

Deanna Maley will teach the classes from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings over a two week period.

A field day live shoot is set for 9 a.m. Saturday, July 18.

No one under the age of 18 may hunt wildlife (except on their own land) without first successfully completing the course. All ages planning to hunt as nonresidents in other states may be required to have a hunter education card.

Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife sponsors the classes with a $10 class fee per student, which may be waived in some circumstances.

Preregistration is available at Ace Hardware, True Value Hardware, ODFW office or other ODFW license sales outlets.

For additional information, call Bryan Nelson at 541-575-1808 or ODFW office, 541-575-1167.
