Hunter Education was a big bang
at the Laughery Valley Fish and Game facility near Versailles
on Saturday, according to information from local conservation
The hunter education course, which was described as being very
successful, was presented by Indiana conservation officers
and certified volunteer hunter education instructors to a class
of mostly young attendees.
This is an excellent facility to have hunter education courses,
noted ICO Andy Cline. Being able to have simultaneous use
of multiple ranges makes it ideal, he continued. Those who
attended the event received instruction on the range in shotgun,
rifle, handgun, archery and muzzleloading.
We really like getting kids involved, noted Mike Kissell,
who is the vice president of LVFG and also a hunter education
instructor. It is important that they are able to do
in addition to getting classroom instruction, he said. The
hunter education course is just one of the many youth-based events
held at the LVFG.
Laughery Valley Fish and Game has been active in hunter education
for decades and has a group of members certified as hunter education
instructors. The group holds two courses each year, usually one
in the spring and another in late summer.
