The Bow Hunter Ed Class will be held in the Bass Pro Shop Old Antique Gun Room at the top of the stairs to the right as you come in the door.  Yes you are welcome to bring snacks and drinks but please remember to clean up after yourselves since we are all guests of BPS. Masks will be required during the class as well as trying to maintain the six foot rule among students and instructors.  Please remember that you are coming at your own risk.  TPWD, Volunteer Instructors nor Bass Pro Shop will be liable towards anyone if they come down with the covid-19.  Again we as you will have to do our best at maintaining the rules for the Coivd-19 that have been put in place by the Governor of Texas and Mayor of San Antonio.  Please remember the class is $15.  We are unable to take credit cards. If you would like to bring your bow, BPS allows me to use their range for free for a short period of time for anyone that might need their bows adjusted, check out new archery equipment etc.
