In the Great book it states:
If you were born after January 1, 1986 and are 16 years old orolder, you must have successfully completed a Basic Hunter Educa-tion course before you hunt in the units listed above.
What the heck does that mean? I was born in July 1986, Yes I have to take it. But my wife was born in 1984, the first part she would not have to take the hunters education course. But then the wonderful people who write this book want to make it confusing as possible and throw in the second part. "and are 16 years old or older" So if you are older than 16 you need it? In that case why wouldn't they just keep it at that, and just say if you are older than 16 you must take the class with a bunch of ten year olds??? the way I read it is my wife is good if born after 1984, that is all. If you want to complain about the rule, go to the "be advised" thread. I just want some clarification before we get a ticket for a poorly written regulation statement.
