Each weekend from Nov. 1 through the end of December, pairs of adult Hunter Education and 4-H certified mentors will escort pairs of youths for one day of supervised small game hunting. For more information or to sign up, call Larry Lewis at 262-9368.

Adult mentors are needed and parents and guardians may participate. Firearms and instruction, ammunition, transportation and lunch, orange vests, hearing and eye protection will be provided.
