The PGC is also reminding first-time hunters, or their parents, that Hunter/Trapper Education Classes are filling up fast. To register for an area course, go to the PGC web site and click on the "Hunter Education Classes" icon in the center of the page. You have a choice of enrolling in a six-hour classroom course, typically given over one or two days, or a home study course followed by a two-hour classroom review and test. I have to wonder how well some of us older hunters might do on that test? Most all of us would probably do OK, but I'll bet there wouldn't be too many who'd ace the thing. We tend to think that with the many years we've spent in the woods we know all there is to know. Perhaps we'd be surprised at just how much we have to learn? By the way, the agency is always looking for instructors for the program. Again, you can find more information by going to the PGC website and clicking on the "Become an HTE Instructor" icon.
