Youth from the West Iron County and Forest Park schools attended the Hunter Safety Field Day at Camp Gibbs Recreation Area on May 6 as the final portion of the Hunter Safety training offered locally. Instructors coached attendees in a number of hunting-related practices, including firearm safety, compass and map reading, trap shooting, rifle practice, archery and tree stand safety. After completing the course and the final test, students were awarded their Hunter Safety certificates.
