San Jacinto Wildlife Area – Free Hunter Education Course Offered, Saturday, June 3rd

San Jacinto Wildlife Area will be hosting a free state mandated Hunter’s Education course on Saturday, June 3rd, 2017.  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 SJ check station at 6:30 am with the course beginning promptly at 7 am.

The class is free to all, no tuition or materials fee. Students must read the Hunter Education manual prior to attending this 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 there will be a sandwich and chips lunch. Contributions for lunch will be accepted in the morning from which the SJ staff will buy sandwiches and chips. If anyone would like to bring something to go with sandwiches they are welcome to.

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, Walmart, etc.) and buy their hunting license.

Every person who wishes to take this course must pre-register for the class. Before registering the student must obtain a GO ID and DOC number and sign a release of liability waiver. To do this, go to:

…and follow the instructions on pre-registering.
