Alternative delivery hunter education courses offered
The Law Enforcement Section of the Division of Natural Resources announces that beginning August 1, Alternative Delivery Hunter Education Courses will be offered to any person eligible to take the "traditional" course to earn a permanent Hunter Education Card.
Those interested must first register at one of the six Law Enforcement District Offices listed on the DNR Web site (www.wvdnr.gov) or the Hunting/Fishing regulation booklet.
Upon registration, one will be given a choice of completing a study workshop or taking an online course at www.ihea.com. After completing that stage of the course, one will be required to attend practical exercises and take a written exam.
"Because a lot of our youth are tied up with school activities in the fall, these alternative courses will give them additional opportunities to complete a Hunter Education Course that is required to purchase a hunting license," according to DNR Law Enforcement Section Lt. Tim Coleman.
For information, contact the closest DNR District Office.
