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.
