The Department of Natural Resources’ Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) program will offer a free hunter education class for ladies only on Saturday, Aug. 25, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Caledonia Sportsman’s Club.
This is a home-study course, and participants must review the materials prior to attending. The class will include review of materials previously studied at home, range time and the test for certification. A hot dog lunch will be provided, compliments of Caledonia Sportsman’s Club, or attendees may bring a sack lunch if they prefer.
Participants may choose to get the course booklet by mail or study the course online. Those who would like materials mailed to them should fill out the registration form and return it no later than Aug. 16 to allow for delivery of the booklet and pre-study before the class. Those choosing the online option should visit www.hunterexam.com/usa/michigan or www.hunter-ed.com/michigan and obtain a certificate prior to the class. There is a third-party fee involved with the online course.
Youngsters are welcome to attend and must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Class size is limited, and pre-registration is required.
