Hunter Education Course
Who Should Take It?
Our Hunter Education course is designed for the new hunter and seasoned hunter alike. The course covers several topics that include safe weapon handling, legal responsibilities, fair chase, game identification, wildlife law, as well as ecological and environmental awareness, preservation and conservation.
The main focus of the Hunter Education Course is safety and ethics.
This course is required by the California Department of Fish and Game for all new hunters before they can obtain a hunting license.
Experienced hunters will also benefit from the course as it provides a good refresher of the basics. It is also an outstanding opportunity for family learning.
At the end of the classroom session you will be required to pass a written examination plus a practical test of your firearms handling and safety skills. The written test is comprised of 100 questions, multiple choice and fill-in-the-blank. You may also be required to write the ten commandments of shooting safety. The practical test may consist of handling a loaded or unloaded firearm, demonstrating how to properly cross a fence with a firearm, demonstrating proper muzzle control of a firearm, and/or other similar skills.
IF YOU ARE A MINOR UNDER THE AGE OF 18, A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN MUST ACCOMPANY YOU TO THIS SESSION TO SIGN A PERMISSION FORM ALLOWING YOU TO HANDLE FIREARMS.
