Registration is open for the spring two-day hunter education course in Douglas County.

In Kansas anyone born after July 1, 1957, and older than 11, must pass a course to be eligible to hunt in Kansas. The sessions will be 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. March 30 at Building 21 at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds, 2110 Harper St., and 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 7 at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 2 near Lone Star Lake in central Douglas County. Attendance is required at both classes to pass the course.

Registration is required because space is limited.

To register call Lawrence police Sgt. Max Miller at 785-832-3288. Leave a voice mail message with your registration information to enroll. The course fee is free, but lunch will be offered for $2 at the April 7 session. Directions to the FOP lodge will be given to participants on March 30.

The course is sponsored by the Fraternal Order of Police Lawrence Lodge No. 2, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, and the Kaw Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation.

More information about hunter education is also available at www.kdwp.state.ks.us.

Maybe those guys poaching deer off the side of the road down by Baldwin City should go. They obviously don't know the difference between right and wrong when it comes to hunting deer.

Not true. This should read:

In Kansas anyone born after July 1, 1957, and 11 or older, must pass a course to be eligible to hunt in Kansas. The original way it is worded is ambiguous as to whether 11 year olds can hunt in Kansas

"No one under the age of 11 will be certified in hunter education. Those under age 11 may take the course on a Space Available basis. Anyone taking the Hunter Education courses prior to age 11, will be required to take the course again for certification after turning 11.

No one under age 12 may hunt by themselves regardless of Hunter Education certification status. All hunters under age 12 MUST hunt under the direct supervision of an adult age 18 or older. "
