    Default Hunters Ed

    Unable to find anything searching old posts(my comp skills?). Could someone tell me when and how to go about getting my son hunters ed classes, or post a link to previous posts. He is 13, will be 14 Nov. 11th, and will be moving here to live next month. I plan on starting him here on bunnies but would like to get the classes out of the way to be ready for spring hunting. Thanks in advance guys.

    There are a few ways to go about getting the course, which are outlined here:

    What I did was the home study booklet with an 8 hour course and shoot with my wife 2 winters ago. Here is a list of the classes offered when and where.

    You can also do an online course as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Seriously consider taking the class with him and getting your card. Several states require hunter-ed to hunt there and don't recognize the fact that you may be exempt in Alaska. I never thought I'd hunt out of state until lately and I am sure glad I have my hunter safety card in Alaska.

    Default Thanks guys

    Thank you guys for the links, AKDoug that is a great idea. I took hunter's ed when I was a child. Back then it was offered in school. Over the years I have misplaced to certificate I got from it. I think it would be a great refresher too.
