This video from Idaho's Hunter Education program shows what to expect from a typical field exercise day during a hunter safety course.

A hunter education class will be offered in Pasco this month by Griggs Department Store and the Washington state Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The free class will cover firearms and outdoor safety, wildlife management and hunter responsibility.

The class meets from 8 a.m. to noon July 15 to 19 at Griggs, 801 W. Columbia St., Pasco. It concludes with a gun range day 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 20.

Register until the class is filled and the registration notice is taken down at bit.ly/GriggsHunterEd.

Ron Ruth, hunter education instructor, gives a brief overview on the history of the safety classes taught for 60 years in the Tri-Cities by members of the Richland Rod and Gun Club.

People born in 1972 and later must show proof of hunter education certification before purchasing their first Washington state hunting license.
