It is that time of year again. Hunting seasons are fast approaching. If you are required or just want to take the hunter ed course again because you haven't taken it in a lot of years like some of us old guys haven't here is some information provided by one of our members.

I took the Hunter Education class back around 1970 and then again with my youngest son some 18-20 years ago. I really enjoyed going through the course again.

From Huntinbull


I am a certified Hunter and Trapper Education instructor for the state of Ohio. I have hunter education classes scheduled for fall of 2009. These classes will be held in Tallmadge, Ohio just North East of Akron in Summit county. All classes listed are held Friday evening from 6pm-9pm and Saturday fom 9am-6pm. Most classes finish early, usually about 4pm, The schedule is as follows.

August 28th-29th
September 25th-26th
October 16th-17th
November 6th-7th and also 20th-21st

These classes will be held at:
Northwest Avenue Church
737 Northwest Avenue
Tallmadge, Ohio 44278
Just a little way NW of Tallmadge Circle.

Also anyone who has a small group (ie Boy scouts, cub scouts, girl scouts, youth groups, etc.) or several members of a family or friends that want to take the class, private classes are available. I generally need 6-10 hrs for class instruction and 20 minutes- 1hr for the test.

There is no cost for the class or materials. Just bring your thinking caps!

To register call 330-431-1718 or 1-800-Wildlife or go to www.wildohio.com

April 9, 10
July 16, 17
August 13, 14
September 10, 11
October 8, 9
November 12, 13
All classes listed ABOVE are held on Friday evenings and Saturdays. Fridays class will be from 6pm until 9:30 pm and Saturdays are from 9am until we are done with the test. Usually about 4 or 5 but I schedule until 6 just to be sure.

I am having a class in June on the 19th that will be a home completion course. This course will be held from 11am until about 5 pm. This course is run differently than a standard course. The student contacts the Dvision of Wildlife at 1-800-wildlife and asks to receive a student manual. The student reads the manual and completes ALL of the review questions at the end of the chapters. Once the questions are completed the student comes to my course on the 19th of june and receives several hours of hands on training and then takes the test.

I will also be runnig a course on Septeber 14, 15, and 16th. It will be a standard course. The times will be from 6pm until 10 pm each day.

All my classes are held at Northwest Avenue Church located at 737 Northwest Ave, Tallmadge, Ohio 44278. Contact 1-800-wildlife or myself at 330-431-1718 to register. Feel free to drop me a PM with any questions.

Thanks

July 16th and 17th class is fast approaching. I would advise getting into your classes early. Once hunting season starts my classes get booked fast. Had a good turn out for both the April class and the June home study course. Hope to see some OGF members or references.

Be good. Have fun!

Just got home from my last scheduled class of the year. Certified over 50 people today. Good turnout. Even had an OGFer and child attend and pass.

Still available for private classes, organizations, etc. Also had a couple students show interest in the trappers education, so I may be scheduling a Trappers Ed class soon. Anyone interested feel free to contact me via PM or email or by phone. My number is in previous posts to this thread.

Happy Hunting!
