San Jacinto Wildlife Area – Hunter Education Course Offered, Saturday, June 4th

San Jacinto Wildlife Area will be hosting a free state mandated hunter’s education course on Saturday, June 4th. If you want to get a hunting license this is the class you need to take to get your license.   Tom Trakes, of San Jacinto Wildlife Area, advised that the students should assemble at the wildlife area’s check station at 6:30 am with the course beginning promptly at 7 am.

This year there is a new procedure for pre-registering for the class. Before registering the student must obtain a GO ID and DOC number. To do this, go to:

You must be at least 18 years old to access and complete pre-registration using the Online License System. Information required for pre-registration: student’s date of birth, address, phone number, physical characteristics and valid ID number (i.e., driver’s license, military ID, etc.). For juveniles without a valid ID, a parent / guardian ID is required.

Once pre-registered using the above procedure then use the newly obtained GO ID and DOC numbers to register at SJWA’s specific class at:

Students must read the hunter’s education manual prior to taking the class. Tom told me that the weather at San Jacinto in June is usually quite warm and suggested that everyone attending would probably want to bring a good supply of bottled water. At noon the staff at San Jacinto will host a BBQ lunch and Tom said they would be taking donations (drinks, salads, desserts, chips, etc.) for this to offset the cost of the food. The class should last until about 4:00 pm and everyone successfully completing the course can then head out to their local DFW license agent (aka: sporting goods store) and buy their hunting license. Tom asked that anyone wanting to attend this free hunter’s education course should call him to pre-register at 951-236-3040 the San Jacinto Office at (951) 928-0580.
