Hunter education field day set for Dec. 9

Hunter education field day set for Dec. 9

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office will host a free Hunter Education Field Day on the evening of Tuesday, December 9, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the LPSO Shooting Range, 3451 Highway 182 in Raceland.

The "Field Day" is designed for those taking the state's online Hunter Safety Course. The combination of completing the online course and attending a "Field Day" is an alternative to taking the traditional two-day Hunter Safety Course.

Students planning to attend this Field Day must complete the online "Home Study Course" through the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries website and present the completion voucher at the Field Day. Entry will be denied unless completed forms are presented. There will be a written test required to complete the Field Day.

Students should not bring firearms or ammunition, but snacks are permitted.

Field Day attendance is free, but class size is limited, so you must register in advance. Registration is available online through the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

For more information, or for assistance with online registration, call the LPSO Training Academy at (985) 449-4480 weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
