New Crop of Hunters Certified by the State


By Aimee Burnett

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) “We learned how to handle guns safely and follow safety rules like how to cross a fence safely,” said Jafina Tubbs, future hunter.

“It’s been fun taking it together as a family and watching them learn the safety rules and how to handle guns and survive,” said Jessica Erickson, future hunter.

A new crop of hunters are now qualified by the state.

That’s because a hunter education course wrapped up Saturday in Twin Falls.

The participants completed their final shooting test on BLM land just south of town.

The kids picked up two trailers full of trash people had dumped.

Trash clean up is about teaching the kids to take care of their public lands.

The class also teaches conservation, firearms safety, basic outdoor skills, and identifying animal tracks.

Everyone must take the class prior to hunting.
