Coming up on March 9th and 10th, the Missouri Department of Conservation will sponsor a Hunter Education Course in Eldon. The Friday-and-Saturday classes focus on firearms and ammunitions education along with gun safety. During the course, participants will also learn about hunting and its effect on wildlife management and conservation as well as ethics and the responsibilities and laws regarding hunting on public and private lands. In order to receive full credit for the course you must attend both the Friday and Saturday sessions. Upon completion of the course, participants will be given a Hunter Education Certification Card.
