I am an NR and I would like to take the class. Does anyone know when the next class opens up? Is there a link for class schedule? I would prefer a winter trip so me and the bride can bonsai it down there for a quick visit. Thanks in advance.

This is Don Martin, volunteer Chief Instructor for the Arizona Game & Fish Department in Kingman. I teach the one day Supplemental or Non-resident class. I have applied to the Department to teach the next class on Saturday, January 5, 2019 here in Kingman in the clubhouse at the Mohave Sportsman Club's 7 Mile Hill Range here in Kingman. I was told the class will be approved and online in the Department's website some time this week. Look in the Hunter Education section for what is called a classroom class that will be listed for that date. There are several requirements to take the class. Since this is a very fast paced class designed specifically for experienced sportsmen, persons under 14 years old MUST have instructor approval to take the class. Persons over 14 years old must have taken and passed a Hunter Education class in another state since 1980 and you need to text me a copy of your card. FYI, for those that want or need a motel room for either Friday or Saturday night, I have made arrangements with a local motel for a small discount for those taking the class. Text me at 928-303-9481 for details. This is a one-day class that starts at 7 a.m. (Arizona time) and ends by about 6 p.m., depending on how many attendees we have. Lunch is usually done in house, so that we can keep the class going without interruption. I'll send you details when you are verified enrolled in the class. Class size is limited to 30 persons. We usually get close to that for registration purposes, but about 10% will be no shows on class day. This is NOT your standard hunter education class. While we do instruct about basic hunter education, we have a lot of emphasis on Arizona only laws and regulations, and I go into detail about the Arizona draw system, including the 5% & 5% limitation on NR's. Also we'll tell you about Arizona's PointGuard system. Others who have taken this class in the past say it is worthwhile. Check the AZGFD website throughout the week to see if it is up and get registered. Upon completion of the class, paperwork will be submitted so that you will receive the permanent bonus point for ALL big game species on your G&F account. Thank you for your interest in the Arizona Hunter Education Program. Any questions? call me at 928-303-9481.

Thanks for chiming in Don! I appreciate all of the requirements and background info. I looked last night and did not see it listed yet on AZGF but I will keep returning back. I will text you once I solidify my travel plans. Thanks again!

Also, you NR guys can either fly into Vegas and rent a car for a 2 hour drive to Kingman or fly into Phoenix and rent a car for a 3 hour drive to Kingman. Don is a great instructor and is a wealth of knowledge.

Thanks Chuckster. The Vegas route is exactly what I am thinking. We have Allegiant as a carrier option. It looks like I can even work Friday, fly out Friday late afternoon and drive to Kingman Friday night for course next day.

It’s a really enjoyable day...I took it 10 years ago and made a couple good friends/huntin buddies that I still talk to. Don is a great guy and a wealth of Arizona hunting knowledge.
