Casper - The Casper Region of the Wyoming Game and Fish is offering a new class this fall.  If you are interested in hunting, this class will highlight how and where to start.  Designed to teach the basics of where to begin, this class will provide information on license applications, regulations and more.

Casper Wildlife Coordinator Justin Binfet decided he wanted to teach people how to get into hunting.  Binfet, who grew up in Casper, says even though his family was from Wyoming, they didn’t hunt.  It wasn’t until college that he was exposed to the sport.  “I learned to hunt from buddies, and I always wished there was more information out there for me as an adult to learn the basics.  That is one of the main reasons I developed this class.  Beginners ask me all the time where to begin, so I decided to design a two-part class that will hopefully help those interested in learning how to get involved and where to start.”

People have many different reasons for wanting to hunt.  “Whether it is to provide food for your family, spend time with family and friends or just to be outside, everyone has a different reason.    I hope to take the intimidation out of how to understand hunting regulations and basic access to a level that people realize it is easy to get started and they too can enjoy hunting,” adds Binfet. 

The two-part class is designed for adults interested in learning to hunt and will contain the basics of regulations, the licensing process, where to look for the information you might need, general map reading skills, public land access and so much more.  The class will be held at the Game and Fish office in Casper, 3030 Energy Lane, on Sept. 11 and Sept. 13 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  An RSVP is requested to Justin Binfet at (307) 473-3408.  Please note this is not a hunter education course and will not provide you with a hunter safety certificate.  Rather, the class content is designed to provide an excellent learning opportunity about the basics of hunting in Wyoming.
