Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator will host two sessions of Hunter Education August 1-3 and September 5-7.

Each session will be held from 6-10 p.m. at the Caddo Sheriff’s south substation, 9956 Mansfield Road in Keithville.

For students who prefer to take the course on-line, a Hunter Education field day will be held from 1-6 p.m. August 12 at the Caddo Sheriff’s Regional Training Academy, 15639 Hwy. 1 South. The field day is only for on-line students, and the on-line voucher is required to participate.

Teaching the Louisiana Hunter Education program is a public service offered by the Sheriff's Office in partnership the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. Instructors teach future hunters about hunting, firearms safety, and ethics. State law requires that anyone born after September 1, 1969, be certified in Hunter Education in order to hunt unaccompanied by an adult who is certified in Hunter Ed.

Students MUST attend all three days in the session to become certified.  Students who are at least 10 years old and complete the course will receive a lifetime Hunter Education certification that is good in all 50 states.  Children under 10 years old cannot be certified, but can attend the class.

Class sizes are limited. To register visit the Wildlife and Fisheries website at
