With the kids headed back to school, it's also time to get them signed up for Hunters Safety classes. Which is easier to do than ever before, due to technology. And you don't have to be a kid. There are classes for the grown-ups as well.

And one thing that you may not know, if you take a Hunters Safety class, then you won't need to take a weapons training class, should you decide to apply for a concealed carry permit.

And one last thought. It's legal to wear your pistol on your hip in Montana.
