FOREMAN, Ark. (AP) - The Southern Sportsmen Foundation is slated to host a hunter education class this month in southwest Arkansas.

The Texarkana Gazette reports the class will take place July 20 at the First Baptist Church in Foreman.

The class is free. It starts at 8 a.m. and will end by 6:30 p.m. Anyone age 12 or younger must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
