r F ,, ra - January 4, 2012 Page 13 tdoors Hunter education easie ' to sign up for Oregon's hunter education students can now register for a class or field day on-line at OD- FW's licensing sales website un- der the "Classes/Workshops" tab. Students may also register at any license sales agent or ODFW office that sells licenses and tags. Previously, students or their par- ents had to sign up by emailing or calling class instructors. "Students and their parents have been asking for this for years, and we're thrilled to finally be able to offer it," said James Reed, ODFW hunter education coordi- nator. "It should streamline the sign-up process for students and our dedicated staff of volunteer hunter education instructors. To register, students will need to purchase a huntec educa- tion class application fee, which is $10. When registering, the student chooses the date and time of their desired class or field day. Contact information for the class instructor is printed on their receipt. Hunter education is mandato- ry for all hunters under the age of 18 and recommended for any new hunter. The course covers topics like firearms safety, hunter ethics, wildlife identification, hunt prepa- ration and techniques and outdoor survival. , Student s may choose .to take the hunter education course en- tirely in a classroom setting or by independent study (online or by workbook). Independent students must pass a required field day that includes live fire exercises before getting certified.

A new law that went into ef- fect Jan. 1 creates new definitions for Class I, II and III all-terrain ve- hicles and also defines a new Class IV ATV.

Class II ATVs weigh more or are wider than Class I ATVs and are designed for cross-country travel on or immediately over land, water, sand, snow, ice, marsh, swampland or other natural terrain and are actually being operated off-highway or on a highway for agricultural purposes and does not qualify as a Class IV ATV. Class III ATVs are two- wheeled, off-highway motorcy- cles. Class IV ATVs are motorized vehicle fulfill the requirements of Class I and II ATVs with the ex- ceptions that they have nonstrad- die seating, are controlled by a steering wheel, have a dry weight of 1,800 pounds or less and are 65 inches wide or less at the widest point.

They are subject to child seat- belt laws, bans against operation on highways or railroads, helmet laws, and safety laws involving passengers and other vehicles, such as snowmobiles. Hunters may now donate to predatory animal control, with proceeds going to Oregon coun- ties to help fund their local preda- tor control programs.

Any donation received will be split among counties with a predatory animal control program where the license, tag or permit is valid. For example, if the dona- tion is made with the purchase of a general hunting license, it would be evenly distributed among all counties with predatory animal control programs because these licenses are valid statewide. If the donation is made with the pur- chase of a controlled big game tag for a particular wildlife manage- ment unit, the donation would go to the county (or counties) where that unit is based, provided the county has a predatory animal control program.
