(Neb.)-Hunters Invited To Free Required Hunter Training At Fort Robinson
(FORT ROBINSON)-There will be free combination Hunter Education and Bow Hunter Education classes taking place at Fort Robinson State Park this weekend.
Hunters ages 12 through 29 must have completed firearm hunter education and carry proof on their person when hunting anything with a firearm or crossbow. They must also complete a separate bow hunter education course and carry proof on their person when hunting deer, antelope, elk or mountain sheep with a bow and arrow.
An Apprentice Hunter Education Exemption Certificate is available once in a person’s lifetime for those who will need to have but have not yet completed the education requirements. Firearm and crossbow hunters under age 12 or those using an exemption certificate can never hunt alone and must be accompanied at all times while hunting by a licensed hunter age 19 or older, and if that hunter is 19 through 29 they must have completed education and carry their proof. Accompanied means individuals must be in unaided verbal and visual communications at all times.
The hunter training sessions will take place at Fort Robinson’s Dodd Hall above the main office from 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 7th, and Sunday, September 8th. Students must attend both sessions. There is no charge for the class and pre-register for both classes can be found at http://www.outdoornebraska.ne.gov/.
