The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will host the course on Saturday in Sunrise at the Markham Park Shooting Range clubhouse.

The course also includes live-firing instruction on a shooting range.
Participants can sign up at MyFWC.com/HunterSafety or by calling 561-625-5122.
Parents or legal guardians must accompany children under 16 years of age to all classes.
