LUZERNE – By law, all first-time hunters and trappers must complete Hunter-Trapper Education training before they can buy a Pennsylvania hunting or trapping license. Rep. Aaron Kaufer (R-Luzerne) will host a training course on Sunday, Oct. 1, which will be in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Game Commission. It will run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at the West Wyoming Hose Company, 935 Shoemaker Ave., in West Wyoming.

“Fall is a popular time for residents to want to learn how to hunt or teach to their sons or daughters; however, there are not always multiple training courses located nearby,” Kaufer said. “Since this training is required to obtain a hunting license, I am hosting this to make the goal of registering for the course, with the hopes of successfully passing, to buy a license more easily accessible.”

A training certificate, which is recognized throughout North America, is awarded when attendees pass a test at the end of the course. Registrants must be at least 11 years old to enroll. Visit for more information about the training.

RSVP is required due to limited seating. Sign up online at or by calling 570-283-1001.
