A traditional hunter education class is scheduled July 13-16 in the Enterprise Room of Delta-Montrose Technical College. Class times are 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Total class time is approximately 14 hours.

There is no charge for the class; space is limited to 25 participants.

Students will participate in a live-fire exercise to demonstrate firearm handling skills. The shooting exercise will occur at the Delta-Montrose Technical College shooting range. If the range is not available, the Colorado Parks and Wildlife shooting trailer will be utilized.

Anyone born on or after Jan. 1, 1949, must have successfully completed an approved hunter education course sanctioned by a state or province before applying for or purchasing a hunting license. Unless an emergency occurs, it is required that a student attend all of the class time. An absence may require that the class be repeated.

The most basic purpose of a hunter education course is to teach safe, responsible firearm handling in the field, in the vehicle and in the home after hunting. Through lectures, hands-on activities and videos, students learn about firearms and ammunition, firearm safety, shooting fundamentals and firearm and wildlife laws.

While hunter education classes enable safer hunting, they also help hunters to be more successful in their hunts and emphasize ethical hunting behavior. Subjects covered include hunter responsibility and ethics; wildlife identification and management; game care; outdoor survival and more. Students also receive introduction to archery and muzzleloader hunting.
