The Georgia Department of Natural Resources and volunteer instructors will be conducting required hunter safety education classes in Jones County beginning this month. Georgia law requires the hunter safety certification for anyone born in 1961 or later in order to purchase hunting licenses and to hunt on public lands. It is also a requirement to joining the Jones County 4-H shotgun team.

There are several ways to meet this requirement with no cost.

A 10-hour course taught by qualified instructors with hands on training will be taught on Saturday, Aug. 20, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Jones County Fire Station No. 5 in Wayside. Lunch will be provided by local sponsors. Those seeking certification at that class must attend the entire session.

Students may also take the course independently by completing an online tutorial at and attending a shorter version of the class. The shorter classes are simply a quick review of the independent course and then the test. These classes generally last less than two hours.
