From lo­cal dis­patches

Early archery in Wildlife Man­age­ment Unit 2B has opened, the first small-game sea­sons start in a month and rifle deer will be here be­fore you know it, es­pe­cially if you’re among the would-be hunters who each year put off com­plet­ing the Penn­syl­va­nia Hunter-Trap­per Ed­u­ca­tion Course un­til it’s too late.

The cer­tifi­cate is re­quired of all first-time hunters and trap­pers re­gard­less of age be­fore pur­chas­ing a li­cense. The train­ing in­cludes about four hours of in­de­pen­dent on­line study that must be com­pleted be­fore six hours of class­room in­struc­tion prior to tak­ing the test. Reg­is­ter for classes and to ac­cess the on­line train­ing by log­ging on www.pgc.state.pa.us and click­ing on the Hunter-Trap­per Ed­u­ca­tion Classes link. Par­tic­i­pants have to be at least 11 years old.
