The Internet-based hunter education conclusion class will be held Saturday, June 15, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the San Juan Mounted Patrol Building, 302 San Juan St.
Students must complete the approved online material before attending the conclusion class. Cost is $24.95 for huntercourse.com. There is no additional charge for the certificate.
The Internet-based hunter education course requires successful completion of an approved online curriculum plus four hours of classroom, not including the test and range time. There are three online courses approved by Colorado Parks and Wildlife, but we strongly encourage you to use huntercourse.com. Proof of online course completion (the certificate) must be submitted when students arrive on Saturday, June 15, or they will not be accepted.
You must preregister and complete the Internet portion of the course before June 15. To register, go to the Colorado Parks and Wildlife official site (wildlife.state.co.us/hunting) and click on “Hunter Education.” Once there, click on “find a course at a place and time to fit your schedule” at the top of the page and simply follow the directions.
If you were born on or after Jan. 1, 1949, you are required to have a hunter safety card before purchasing a hunting license.
