For, I'm Eric Granstrom. I just saw a notification from the Department of Fish and Wildlife that it's not too late to sign up for Hunter Education. Classes are available in-person, or online. Anyone under 18 who takes the class online will need to complete an in-person field skills evaluation by a certified instructor. Those over 18 can be certified online by a virtual field skills assessment. Of course, for my money, there's nothing better than an in-person experience when it comes to Hunter Education. I was lucky enough to have a certified instructor in my house as a kid, my Dad. He taught history and social studies back in the 70's at Cascade Middle School in Sedro-Woolley. He also coached football, wrestling and baseball. Believe it or not, he convinced the school district and his administration to allow him to teach hunter education as part of an outdoor recreation class. He became a certified instructor through the state and actually taught gun safety to his students, both in the classroom and the field. Can you imagine that today? I guess my brother and I were his guinea pigs to test on before his students. Until next time, Good Fishing!
