First Sergeant (Ret) Buchfink served his nation and community as a 21 year Army veteran.  His passion for hunting and conservation makes him the right person for teaching this subject. He is vetted by the local school district and will provide a safe place for your kiddos while you're away shopping in our great community. The instructor will stay with the kiddos during lunch if they plan to eat at the facility. Lunch Break 12:00pm to 1:00pm Registration on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department ERS! Everyone must use a unique email address, it is required.  A parent or friend cannot register someone with their email address.  The same email address may not be used twice.  The email address is part of the security protocol and used to identify the user.  Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are working on allowing students to register for a class without an email address.  The problem with that is, they will not be able to log in and make changes to their profile. They will have to call TPWD when they get a valid email address in the future.  They have found that there are a lot more children without email addresses than first thought and we want to accommodate them. I recommend if you are the parent or legal guardian create an email account for them and share the account with them when age appropriate.
