Dual bowhunter, hunter education course planned
HOMESTEAD — A dual course satisfying bowhunter and hunter education requirements is scheduled for the evening of July 21 and all day July 26 at the Amana Sportsman’s Club in Homestead.
Although bowhunter education is not required by Iowa law, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources encourages bowhunters to enroll in the course, especially first-time hunters, as it is required in a number of other states.
Hunter education is a mandatory program for anyone born after Jan. 1, 1972, and is designed to introduce students to several life-long skills that are important to the many different types of outdoor recreation.
The program will include live firing as part of the course.
