Hunter safety-October


Hunter safety Internet-completion courses offered for October

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering free hunter safety Internet-completion courses in 12 counties this month. (List follows.)

Students who have taken the online course and wish to complete the classroom portion must bring the online-completion report with them.

All firearms, ammunition and materials are provided free of charge. Students should bring a pen or pencil and paper. An adult must accompany children younger than 16 at all times.

Anyone born on or after June 1, 1975, must pass an approved hunter safety course and have a hunting license to hunt alone (unsupervised). The FWC course satisfies hunter-safety training requirements for all other states and Canadian provinces.
