Home Study Class for Hunter Education
Students will complete the first section of the class on the Internet at their own pace. They will then complete the skills-based portion of the course with instructors March 17 at a special class at the Ridgway Community Center. The concluding class, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., includes a written exam and tests on firearms safety, hunter responsibility, game laws and hands-on learning activities. Students must pass the written exam and complete the live-fire exercises.
Ridgway is located in Ouray County in southwestern Colorado. Anyone born after January 1, 1949, who wishes to hunt, must have a valid hunter education card prior to purchasing a hunting license.
