Bowhunter Education Course

Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge will offer a bowhunter education course on Sunday, Jan. 19, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Rhode Island law states that no license to bowhunt shall be issued to any person unless that person has held a previous Rhode Island bowhunter license or unless that person presents a bowhunter education card issued by R.I. or another state’s equivalent hunter safety program. This education course entails classroom participation and includes such topics as hunter responsibility, principles of wildlife management, wildlife laws and identification, and more. This course will be offered free of charge at Sachuest Point NWR, Sachuest Point Rd., Middletown, but pre-registration is required. To register, contact Scott Travers at stravers@portsmouthri.com.
