Red River Valley Sportsmen’s Club to Host Range & Field Day for Firearm Safety Certificate

Perley, MN — For boys and girls age 11 to 15 who have yet to complete the Firearms safety course, the Red River Valley Sportsmen’s Club of Perley notes that now is the time to get your certificate. The Sportsmen’s Club will be hosting a Range and Field Day on Saturday, October 16th from 9am until 3pm at the club, but Club President Wayne Lee notes that prior the range and field day, they must hit up the DNR website and complete the online portion of the course.

At the range and field day, Lee says they will spend half the day reviewing the online course and the other half going through real world scenarios and demonstrations.

While the firearm’s safety course covers a number of important safety topics, Lee notes there are three things that every hunter, young and old, need to remember.

The online portion takes on average 7.5 hours to complete and can be done at your own pace. The cost is $24.95. For more information, please contact Wayne Lee at 701-361-8158.  Those who receive their certification will be able to participate in the Youth Mentored Hunt, which takes place the following week during the MEA weekend.
