Successful Hunter’s Safety Course Held at San Jacinto Wildlife Area

San Jacinto Wildlife Area held their annual, free, hunter’s safety course this past Saturday, 6/18/11. As you probably know, a hunter’s safety course certificate is required of anyone who wants to obtain a hunting license in California. Tom Trakes, the Wildlife Habitat Supervisor at San Jacinto, reported that they had a light turnout with 28 prospective hunters taking the course. Tom said the light turnout was likely because there were four other hunter’s safety courses being given that day at various locations throughout Southern California. Tom said they will probably have the course in May next year to avoid this conflict and it will also be cooler weather for the course, although it wasn’t excessively hot this year. All the participants enjoyed the informative course and also enjoyed a nice giant submarine sandwich lunch at midday. Tom said that the students ranged in age from 8 to around 65 and everybody passed the course. Congratulations to all the new hunters and we hope to see you sometime during the coming season at San Jacinto.
