FWC offers hunter safety course in Wakulla County

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering a free hunter safety course in Wakulla County.

The course will be at the Livestock Pavilion, 84 Cedar Ave., in Crawfordville. Instruction will be from 6 to 9 p.m. Dec. 1, 3, 8 and 10. The range portion of the class will be Dec. 12, from 9 a.m. until noon.

An adult must accompany children under 16 at all times. Students should bring a pencil and paper with them to take notes.

The hunter safety course is required before anyone born on or after June 1, 1975, can purchase a Florida hunting license. The FWC course satisfies hunter safety training requirements for all other states and Canadian provinces.

People interested in attending this course can register online and obtain information about future hunter safety classes at MyFWC.com/HunterSafety or by calling the FWC's regional office in Panama City at 850-265-3676.
