Hunter safety course coming to Minden

Douglas County Sheriff Ron Pierini and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department, in conjunction with the Nevada Department of Wildlife, will conduct two one-day hunter safety courses. The first course is scheduled for March 29, and the second is April 5.

Both courses will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Douglas County Judicial and Law Enforcement Building, 1625 Eighth St., Minden. Seating is limited to 30 students per class, therefore advance registration is required. To register, visit the Nevada Department of Wildlife Web site at For anyone without Internet capability, contact the Douglas County Sheriff’s Administration Office at (775) 782-9900.

Participants under the age of 18 may attend the course free of charge, courtesy of the Carson Valley Chukar Club. All others are required to pay an attendance fee of $5. Students must be at least 11 years old to participate in the course.

All attendees must obtain and complete a 2008 Hunter Safety workbook before attending the course. Students may obtain the workbook for free at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Administrative Office in Minden or at any Nevada Department of Wildlife Office, or they can complete the workbook online at the NDOW Web site for a charge of $15.

Students must bring their completed workbook or Nevada Online Course Completion Confirmation (printed off the Web site upon completion) to the class to gain admittance.

The parents or guardians of minor students are responsible for student transportation and should notify the instructors if someone other than a parent or guardian is picking up the student after class.

Participants taking a class on the weekend are reminded to bring a lunch.

Classes often will spend two hours or more outdoors, so participants should dress accordingly.
