Here in KY in the rural areas some districts have Hunter' s Ed classes. It' s a great idea.

Aw, come on.

Do we really need the government teaching our kids one more thing that we should be teaching them ourselves?

I think it' s a great idea, and I' m very happy to hear it is still available in some areas! Unfortunately, I haven' t heard of any classes in the schools in Oregon for a long time. When I was in the 8th grade, I took a class called " Outdoor Education" . It was great! There was me and 21 guys...not many girls were interested back then. We learned everything imaginable about hunting, fishing, and survival. Everyday we target-practiced with pellet guns right in the classroom (that' s when I learned I was shooting with the wrong eye and learned to shoot left-handed), and we made fishing lures and built our own rods. It was the best, and most fun, class I ever took!

Any way that we can get more kids interested in hunting and fishing, is a good thing! Alot of parents don' t hunt and so the kids that would like to try it need somebody to show them how to be successful and safe. I don' t think there' s a down-side to classes that teach that!
