State Hunter Education Links

State fish and game agencies began offering hunter safety programs in 1949. Since then, more than 35 million people have been certified. The hunter safety program has grown, and it is now known as the Hunter Education Program. While hunter safety is a primary concern, hunter ethics, wildlife management, survival, and other topics are important parts of the course as well.
It is strongly recommended that anyone who plans on hunting or shooting completes a hunter education class. The hunter education course covers topics such as firearms, ammunition, gun handling, archery, hunter responsibilities, outdoor safety, wildlife management and conservation, and other related information. This course is beneficial for everyone, even if hunting is not your goal. Forty-nine states and all of the Canadian Provinces require hunter education.
