The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will host a Hunter Education Course at the Crater of Diamonds State Park pavilion, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., including a one-hour lunch break. Topics covered will include firearms safety, conservation, wildlife management, sportsmanship, archery, muzzleloading, first aid and survival, and other hunting information to promote safer and more responsible behavior by all outdoorsmen throughout the state. Participants must attend all sessions and successfully complete a written examination to receive a Hunter Education Graduate card, which is honored in all states and provinces where hunter education is required.
The course is free of charge, but space is limited to 30 students. To reserve your seat, call Crater of Diamonds State Park at 870-285-3113. For more information, call the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission Hunter Education Office toll free at 1-800-482-5795, or 223-6377 in Pulaski County.
