Reservations are being accepted for two free hunter education courses in October and November, sponsored by the Lawrence Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 2.
The first course will be from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Oct. 19, at Building 21 of the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds, 2110 Harper St., and from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 25 at the FOP lodge, southwest of Lawrence near Lone Star Lake.
The second course will be at the same times and places on Nov. 2 and Nov. 7.
To obtain hunting certification, students need to attend one course. Attendance at both course sessions is required.
If interested, you may call Lawrence Police Sgt. Max Miller at 832-3288, and leave a voicemail with full legal name, birth date, contact phone number and which course you plan to attend. You will not receive a phone call back, but should attend the first day of the course.
Anyone born after July 1, 1957, is required to pass a hunter education class to hunt in Kansas.
To obtain a license, students must be 11 by the last day of the class.
