Lawrence police are offering a free hunting safety course for anyone in Douglas County who has not completed the mandatory state-approved training.
Anyone born after July 1, 1957, must have a hunter education certificate to hunt in Kansas. The two-day course will be held on the last Saturday of April and the first Saturday of May. Students must be at least 11 years old as of May 4 to enroll. Parents and guardians of children attending the course, which is free of charge, are welcome to attend.
Students must attend both days to pass the course. On April 27 the course will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Building 21 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. On May 4, the course will be held at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge near Lone Star Lake, and students are advised to dress outdoor activities. A lunch of hotdogs, beans and chips will be provided for $2 on the second day of the course, or students may bring their own lunch.
The Lawrence Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #2 is sponsoring the hunter education course. For more information, contact Sgt. Max Miller of the Lawrence Police Department at 785-832-7514 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
