MARTINO: Ivy Tech to host Hunter Ed.

10-hour class set for March 15-16.

(Continued)

Hunter Ed. can be completed either online or by attending a class where you will receive face-to-face instruction. I highly recommend attending the class sessions. The online program costs $20 and is time consuming and seems to be much more difficult. You will also find yourself spending hours staring at a stale computer screen.

Class sessions offer face-to-face presentations and the opportunity to ask questions. Plus they are free. All segments are taught by our area’s most knowledgeable, state-certified instructors and conservation officers. Howard County coordinator Denny Heaton has specially handpicked his group of teachers who not only possess a wealth of knowledge, but also present the information in a way that makes it interesting and retainable.

Students have the opportunity to learn complete firearms safety, whether in the field or at home. Everything is covered including handguns, rifles and muzzleloading equipment. Archery safety measures also are presented. Other topics include tree-stand safety and wildlife identification. Participants also will learn about first aid, conservation, game care and hunter ethics.

To become a certified graduate of Indiana’s Hunter Ed. Curriculum, students must complete the 10 hours of classroom instruction and obtain at least 70 percent correct on the 100-question final examination. Although there is no age requirement for those attending the program, I highly recommend students under the age of 12 be accompanied by an adult.

Registration for the Ivy Tech-IDNR Hunter Ed. Program is required. To sign up go to www.ivytech.edu/kokomo/ and click on the Hunter Ed link on the left side of the page.

BENEFIT CONCERT

If you are looking for a fun event while benefitting a worthwhile cause, a community-wide concert will take place March 8 beginning at 7 p.m. at Celebrations Banquet and Conference Facility.

Bobby Jones and the Rendition Band will perform their mix of classic rock and upbeat country music. Miscellaneous door prizes and a silent auction featuring numerous outdoor equipment and art work will also be held. All proceeds will go towards this summer’s 31st annual Jim “Moose” Carden Kids Fishing Clinic. Tickets are modestly priced at $5 and may be purchased at the door or in advance by contacting Craig Carter at 765-438-1193.
