A 1996 state law requires that all hunters born on or after January 1, 1980, successfully complete the hunter education course before they can receive their first hunting license. Participants completing the hunter education course receive a Hunter Education Certification card verifying that they have passed the course of instruction.
This will be an excellent opportunity for hunters who need the course in order to qualify for their hunting license. It can be beneficial for both beginning and advanced hunters, even those born before January 1, 1980.
The minimum ten hour course includes instruction in firearms safety, hunter ethics, treestand safety, wildlife management, game identification, first aid, survival techniques, laws and regulations.
Pre-registration is required for attendance at the class.
