school me on hunters safety classes (tri cities area)
« on: March 16, 2013, 02:02:43 PM »

Hi all,
 I went to sign up my girlfriend and kid for hunter safety classes through the wdfw website last night, only to find that the whole years worth of classes is booked up, along with the range days for the online course.

Do these dates only pertain to wdfw classes, ie, are there private tpe classes through sporting grouos i should be looking for?
Wheres the best place to look for scheduled classes besodes wdwf's eebsite? Its been 17 years sense i was in a class   , so i dont remember exactly how it worked for sign ups etc.

Thanks
Wade

Last I looked, there weren't even any scheduled. My daughter completed the online course, and I am sitting in the "field day" class with her right now, which is in Monroe, because there weren't any on the website for the Tri - cities.

The online sign up is the only way to obtain a class. There are no private classes so just keep watch as there will be many more opportunities as the year progresses. You are doing the right thing by getting an early start as things get more difficult approaching fall and the instructors focus on having time to hunt.

Classes will be added as instructors figure out what will work for them and the rest of their team in scheduling a class.

Just keep watching the site. People will cancel.

I just looked at the website, and unless I'm reading it wrong, there isn't even a class scheduled in the Tri-Cities, nearest one was Prosser, and it is full.  This is why my daughter did the online course, and then did the field day, which she successfully completed today, and will be hunting with me this fall.

If you do the online course the city of Richland does the field portion through the parks and rec department. They have a class in April and May so far. Go to register for classes and it is under the general education heading. Cost is only $5 for residents and $6.25 for non. You will have to register in person if you haven't done anything through them before.

Also for a $20 application fee you can get a one time hunter Ed waiver for anyone over 10 if accompanied by a licensed hunter. Think the licensed hunter has to have had a few years of consecutive licenses.

Thanks for the heads up thwack. Were on a couple of waitlists, I don't think she will want to go out but a few times due to her work schedule anyways. Maybe ill try for a waiver to let her get her feet wet before she commits further

When I took mine years ago I just went downt o Griggs in Pasco.  Had a Buddy do the Online thing a year or so ago, went down to Griggs and got set up to go to a range day with a class of folks that was finishing up (out off the Khalotus highway).  Might be worth a phone call to their gun counter.

go to griggs, or sportsman's/wholesale sports and ask about their classes.  I've never had any luck signing up online. if you go and ask in person hey can help a little more.  also try hole in the wall
