Take Your Hunter Safety Course On-Line and Get Ready for Fall
We’re just weeks away until hunters across the country start returning back on the water and in the woods looking for their favorite game animal. However, it’s time to start taking care of some of those last-minute details. For some, that means finishing their hunter safety course. But if you live in the right state, you can do it all from the comfort of your home – No travel required!
Taking a hunter safety course at hunter-ed.com or bowhunter-ed.com is a great way to prepare for bowhunting and early season dove, duck and goose hunting. All you need is a computer!
“Studying at hunter-ed.com and bowhunter-ed.com is free to the public and allows students to learn about hunter safety in the comfort of their home,” says Kurt Kalkomey, president of Kalkomey Enterprises, Inc., official provider of recreational safety education materials in print, internet, and DVD for all 50 states.
“These days it’s a challenge to find a free weekend or multiple week nights to take the classroom hunter safety course. The hunter-ed.com and bowhunter-ed.com online courses save time and money and open up hunting opportunities for young and novice hunters.”
Students can take the first step toward receiving their hunter or bowhunter certification by successfully completing the online courses for hunter education or bowhunting. Those who must be certified before they can buy a hunting license pay a one-time fee, which is due only if they pass the test. Students can take the test as many times as they need to pass it. Online hunter safety and bowhunting education courses are available in participating states so students should visit hunter-ed.com or bowhunter-ed.com to take a course specific to their state.
After passing the exam at hunter-ed.com or bowhunter-ed.com, students should immediately print out a Field Day Qualifier Certificate, which admits them to a field day in their state (if applicable). Many states require students to pre-register for field days, so hunter education coordinators advise students to visit their state wildlife agency website to sign up. Field days typically include a skills trail, shooting exercises, ethics presentation, and a final hunter education exam.
The contents at hunter-ed.com are developed in conjunction with the state agency responsible for hunter education. Students who use hunter-ed.com will study the same content used in classroom courses.
Currently, there are 23 states enrolled in the online program. Hunters from the following states can earn their certificate online from:
Bowhunter-ed.com is the official online course of the National Bowhunter Education Foundation (NBEF) and is approved by all states requiring successful completion of a recognized bowhunter education course.
Don’t delay, take the next step and join in on the chase for some of America’s favorite game species!
