Youth Hunter Education Program is a ‘good overview’ of hunting

Registration has begun for the ninth annual Youth Hunter Education Program.

Seats are limited to about 200 for the free event that teaches young hunters about safety and conservation. The course is scheduled for Aug. 10-11 at the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, 20155 Cypresswood Drive in Cypress.

Students enrolled in the course earn an essential certification. To hunt in Texas, anyone born after Sept. 2, 1971 must take an approved hunter education and safety course. Participants must provide their Social Security number and driver’s license, if they are old enough to drive.

Students must attend both days of the course – from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Saturday and from noon to 3:30 p.m. Sunday – to earn the certification.
