Due to COVID restrictions imposed on events and gatherings in Pennsylvania, the Paris Sportsman's Club will not be conducting a Pennsylvania Hunter-Trapper Education course in the fall of 2020. We believe that the mandates limiting the class size, the logistics of social distancing in the hall, the inability to provide snacks, the responsibility of verifying that no one in the class has been exposed to any situation that warrants a 14 day quarantine, and not allowing parents/guardians to accompany attendees (unless they also register for the class, thus limiting the amount of attendees who need to take the class), will make it difficult to conduct a class this year. Also, each student will only be allowed to bring into the classroom a jacket, keys, phone and wallet or purse, so notebooks or other written materials are not permitted.

Basic Hunter-Trapper Education (HTE)
By law, all first-time hunters and trappers, regardless of age, must successfully complete Hunter-Trapper Education training before they can buy a Pennsylvania hunting or trapping license. A training certificate, which is recognized throughout North America, is awarded when you pass a test at the end of the course. You must be at least 11 years old to enroll in a class. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children. The training is designed to produce safe, responsible, knowledgeable and involved participants. The results of this program are remarkable. Since 1959, hunting-related shooting incidents have declined drastically. Hunting is safe and getting safer, thanks to hunter education.
