Welcome to beasafehunter.org!
The purpose of hunter education is to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to become safe, responsible hunters.
Typically, students meet these needs by attending a traditional, instructor led course including classroom lectures and field/range experiences.
In today's society, students have less free time to devote to attending a hunter education course.
Nine southeastern states (AL, AR, FL, GA, LA, KY, MS, SC, TN) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service formed a partnership to develop alternative delivery programs for hunter education.
Alternative delivery formats improve accessibility and allow the student to complete a portion of the hunter education course at home in a more user-friendly atmosphere.
Requirements for graduation from the hunter education course vary depending on state laws and program requirements.
Most states require participation in a field exercise where students demonstrate skills that safe, responsible hunters should be able to accomplish.
