SALMON, Idaho (KIFI) - New hunters interested in getting their hunter education certification before deer season can do so in-person through a course in Salmon scheduled for early October. 

An in-person, instructor-led hunter education course is scheduled October 4, 5, 6 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. each evening, and Saturday, October 8 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  For more information or to register, go to or visit the Fish and Game office in Salmon.
