On Line Hunter Safety Course - Bay County Florida

© 2009 Albert A Rasch

For the FYI file:

Hunter safety Internet completion course offered in Bay County

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

The course will be at the Bay County Fairgrounds, at the corner of U.S. 98 and Sherman Avenue in Panama City, Florida. Instruction will take place 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Feb. 21, with the firing range section of the course being held the same day at a different location.

Individuals must complete the Internet course before to coming to class and are required to bring a copy of the final report from the computer portion of the course to be admitted.

Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Students are encouraged to bring a pencil and paper with them to take notes.

The hunter safety course is required for anyone born on or after June 1, 1975, to 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 or by calling the FWC's regional office in Panama City at 850-265-3676."

This is obviously for Florida Residents, but isn't great that there are more and different options becoming available?

I didn't know that there was a program to become an Instructor in the Hunter Safety Program. I'm signing up!

That sounds like a real nice program and one that could only enhance a new hunter.
One on one hands on is the best training in my opinion though which can be achieved after the class.
