Hunter safety classes are starting for those who have never had a California hunting license, including new junior hunters and adult hunters.
Attendance at all classes, including the range portion, is required to complete the course. The classes last four to five days, depending on the location, and culminate in shooting at the range on the final day of the class. Sign-up is required and a fee of $3 is charged for materials. To sign up for a class call the county Sheriff's Office at 339-6302 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
Those with questions about the classes call California Fish and Game Warden Carol Sassie at 344-8139 or Lt. Joe Brana at 352-3059.
According to Sassie, if you plan on hunting for the first time this year and need a hunting license, these are the only classes offered, so people should sign up early.
