Hunter Safety Education Classes at the CVCC will continue in 2016

A recent article in the Westby Times indicated that the CVCC was considering NOT having Hunter Safety Education classes in the future.
The is only applies to the regular Classroom classes we normally held at the Coon Valley Village Hall in February and March. New Wisconsin DNR rules require that regular classes be completed within a maximum of 3 weeks time and take no more than 19 classroom hours. This is far less time and hours than our traditional CVCC class requires and is not a requirement that our instructors feel we can meet to effectively teach to Safety component of Hunter Safety. According to the State DNR this change was made to satisfy "customer demands and provide better customer service" as well as enforce consistency in all classes offered throughout the State.
