NORTHFIELD, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is going to be offering a hunter education and bow-hunter education class geared to women.
The class will be offered on Friday, June 20, and Saturday, June 21, at Mountain Deer Taxidermy in Northfield.
Participants must first pass the online firearms course before taking part in the field day and fill out a manual for bow hunters.
The field days will cover basic firearm handling and safety, proper shooting techniques, tree-stand safety, game tracking, ethical hunting practices, basic survival skills, and hunting regulations.
Participants who successfully pass the final written exam will receive a Hunter Education Firearm Safety Certification Card, as well as the Hunter Education Bow-hunter Safety Card, which are valid in all U.S. States and Canadian provinces.
