The Oelwein Police Dept. teamed up with the Iowa DNR and hosted a free Hunter Education class on July 15th & 16th, 2014 at the new Oelwein Police Dept. Hunter education is a mandatory program for anyone born after January 1, 1972 and is designed to introduce students to several life-long skills that are important to the many different types of outdoor recreational opportunities. The course teaches students basic survival and first aid skills, water safety, wildlife identification, and the basics of wildlife management, hunting laws, and firearm/archery safety. Hunter education also stresses the importance of individual responsibility and outdoor ethics. See more pictures on our Community page or on our Facebook page.
