The Test
A 100 question multiple choice test is given at the end of the day. If you pass the test with at least 80% you will be awarded a Hunter Safety Completion Card. Successful graduates take the card to a sporting goods store to purchase a hunting license.

What happens if you don't pass the test?
You may come back to any other class we have scheduled and retake the whole class or just the test for no additional charge.

Have you lost your Hunter Safety Education card?
If you took the class at our location, we can reissue you a duplicate if we find your name in our system.
Cost: $20.00

At what age can children first take the hunter safety course?
Since the Department of Fish and Wildlife is a state agency, it can't discriminate by age. According to DFW, it is up to the discretion of the parent or guardian to decide when their child has the maturity and upper body strength to safely manipulate a firearm.

When can junior hunters go on their first hunt and what can they hunt for?
Once juniors have passed the test, they can obtain a hunting license and may hunt any legal species except big game, if they are under the age of 12. Once they have turned 12, they may then apply for big game tags and hunt big game with their Junior Hunting License and appropriate big game tag.
