Do you know a Youth Hunter that needs the in-person portion of the Maine Hunter Safety Course? Kora Shrine is sponsoring a local opportunity for them in April with the help of the Androscoggin County Fish & Game Association.

COURSE IS LIMITED TO 20 STUDENTS

Parents do not need to stay for the class. Please bring a mask. Hand sanitizer is provided.

 

Students must first complete the online two-part course offered through IF&W. The online course for people 10-15 years of age is $19.95. That fee is paid to “Hunter Ed” through the Maine IF&W site. Students must print out a hunter education certificate and create a survival kit to bring to the in-person educational portion.

The link for this course is:  https://www.maine.gov/ifw/programs-resources/educational-programs/safety-courses/firearms-hunter-safety.html

 

The in-person skills & exam portion will be held Saturday April 17th – 8 AM to 5 PM at Androscoggin County Fish & Game Association, 476 Perkins Ridge Rd., Auburn and will be taught by IF&W instructors. Certificates and cards will be given to students who pass. No fee required for the in-person classroom portion and lunch will be provided. In-person participants need to register at: https://edsifwsafety.eventsmart.com/events/kora-sportsmen-expo/
