Indiana DNR Conservation Officer taught the course in the Agricultural Education classroom. Students were required to attend ten hours of intensive training and instruction. Mr. Bolt talked about all segments of fire arm safety, including: rifle, shotgun, handgun, archery and muzzleloader. Students also learned about hunter ethics, fair chase, and wildlife preservation and conservation. At the completion of the course students took a one hundred question test and had to pass with at least a 70% score to receive their hunter education card, patch and certificate. It’s estimated that more than 90% of rural Indiana homes have at least one gun in the home. With such a high percentage it’s important that our youth understand the importance of gun safety and the consequences that can result without the proper education.
