LaPorte County Parks will host a Hunter Safety Education Course at Smith Hall in Red Mill County Park on September 17-20, 2012.


Classes run from 6 to 9:30 each night. The free course is offered by the Indiana DNR Division of Law Enforcement. Conservation Officers and volunteers will be conducting the course. Space is limited to the first 50 registered. You must attend all three nights of the course to graduate the course.

Good News! A full-version, 52-page, Indiana Hunting & Trapping Guide is coming back and was expected to be available at retailers in late-July. In addition to the printed guide, an easy-to-use online version will be available in multiple formats.
