Hunter Safety Course Offered at Copper Breaks State Park

QUANAH, TX- Changes in the law has made taking Hunter Safety easier; the course requirement has been shortened and can be done in eight hours or less.   The state required Hunter Safety class will be offered at Copper Breaks State Park on Saturday, January 24, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. It is recommended that participants bring a sack lunch due to time constraints.

This basic hunter education class is required for all hunters born on or after September 2, 1971.  The minimum age for certification is 9 years old. Hunters ages 9-16 must successfully complete the hunter safety course or be accompanied by an adult, while hunters age 17 and older must successfully complete the course, or purchase a one time only exemption, or be accompanied. 

The Texas hunter education certification is honored by all other states which require hunter education, but you must carry your card with you.  

Hunter education instructors Wendell Barberee and Carl Hopper will offer the course. Participation is by advance registration only. Chidren age 9 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

To register, call (940) 839-4331 during regular business hours. A non refundable fee of $15.00 is required.

Military and Law Enforcement personnel and persons with concealed carry permits are not exempt and must take the hunter safety class.

"With today's busy schedules the class is now done in one day instead of two, and certification is good for life," said Lead Ranger Barberee. "So make your call today and get your slot in the class. We have a limited number of spaces."

For more information on the hunter safety class, or other Copper Breaks State Park programs or facilities, call (940) 839-4331. Copper Breaks State Park is located thirteen miles south of Quanah and eight miles north of Crowell on State Highway 6.
