Most school systems are chagrined over a bill passed by the West Virginia legislature implementing hunter education classes in public high schools.

The bill would allow Department of Natural Resources certified instructors to teach hunter education and hunter safety during classroom time at the discretion of each county's superintendent.

Boone County Superintendent Steve Pauley acknowledges that a large number of his county's students enjoy hunting, but questions putting the classes into a high school setting.

Most high schools already have a packed day of coursework, with additional subjects or items being crowded into a schedule.

Each county will make a decision about the course.
