KIRKSVILLE, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will hold a hunter education skills session on Feb. 11. The class will take place from 5:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. at the MDC Northeast Region Office located at 3500 South Baltimore St. in Kirksville.

Students will learn how to be safe, responsible hunters in this course, and upon passing an exam, will earn a hunter education certification card.

"This is an opportunity for new and young hunters to beat the spring rush, and have their certification in plenty of time for spring hunting," said MDC Outdoor Skills Specialist Rob Garver.

The Missouri Hunter Education Skills Session is the second half of the hunter education certification process. To attend this class, students must first complete the Missouri hunter education online course, or the chapter review questions inside the Missouri hunter education student manual. Students must be 11 years old by Feb. 11, 2016. Registrants 16 years old and younger must present a birth certificate, or other proof of age to the course.

Attendees must register for this class by Feb. 4. To learn more about Missouri's hunter education process, or to register for this class, call Rob Garver at 660-785-2420, or visit
