The class is Sept. 7 from 8 a.m. until completed in Lecanto. Students who have taken the online course and wish to complete this classroom portion must bring the online-completion report with them.

The location for this class will be given to those who register in advance by calling the regional FWC office at 386-758-0525 or going to MyFWC.com/HunterSafety.

All firearms, ammunition and materials are provided free of charge. Students should bring a pen or pencil and paper. An adult must accompany children younger than 16 at all times.
