26 students attended and passed the Hunter Safety Education class which concluded last night at The Niobrara Lodge Conference room. Volunteer instructors for the Game and Parks Commission presented 10 hours of instruction on such things as safe gun handling, hunter ethics, wildlife management, first aid and responsibility. Five individuals scored a perfect score on the 50 question exam. Justin Sheidt, Kortney Kronhofman, Jake Fulton, Jared Fulton and Cade Adamson. The Sandhills Strikers Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation donated two gun cases for the top scores. After a simple drawing Cade Adamson and Jake Fulton received the cases. A big thank you to The Niobrara Lodge for the use of their facility for the Hunter Education Class.
