Game warden to offer required hunter education course
FLORESVILLE -- Game Warden Jesse Garcia of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department will host a two-day hunter education course Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 10-11, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, located on U.S. 181.
According to state regulations, every hunter born on or after Sept. 2, 1971, must successfully complete a hunter education training course, and proof of such course, or a deferment, is required to be “on your person” while hunting. The minimum age for certification is 9 years old, and the cost is $15.
As an exception, children 16 years of age and younger may hunt without having completed a hunter education course, provided they are accompanied by a licensed hunter 17 years of age or older who has completed a hunter education course or is otherwise exempt.
For more information or to register for the class, call Garcia at 830-391-0190.
