Online option now available for hunters to obtain certificate

With the big-game license application deadline of April 7 about two months away, Colorado Parks and Wildlife is making it easier for all prospective first-time hunters to obtain their required hunter-education certificate.

Anyone born on or after Jan. 1, 1949, is required to pass a state-approved hunter-education course prior to applying for or purchasing a license.

An online home-study course covering safety and hunting information is available and will be followed by a hands-on firearms test on March 14 at the Ridgway Community Center.

The online portion must be completed before March 13.

The skills-based portion will include a pretest, firearms safety and live-fire exercise, hunter responsibility, hunting rules and regulations, and other hands-on learning activities.

There is no charge for the hands-on class.

This class and all hunter-education courses are open to nonhunters as well.

“Hunter education is also a great way to learn more about firearm safety, wildlife management and survival skills,” district wildlife manager Kelly Crane said.

Registration is available at 970-209-2369 or online at http://www.cpw.state.co.us. Registration deadline is March 8.
