Instructor-led courses are considered the best option for youth ages 9 to 14 and/or for individuals having minimal hunting experience.
The course includes hunter ethics, wildlife management, conservation, survival and wildlife laws. Students must also attend an outdoor field day which includes a final examination and demonstrating safe firearm handling techniques with training guns.
Students will be evaluated on their class participation, attendance, exam score and safety during the outdoor field day.
Course duration: 12 to 18 hours depending on location and instructor. All courses provide students with the highest level of interactive, hands-on training from experienced, certified, volunteer instructors.
