and Charlotte counties. People seeking certification must attend
all four days.
Students will learn about hunting laws, hunter
ethics/responsibility and safe gun handling, among other topics,
before taking the final test. The course also includes live-firing
instruction on a shooting range.
The location and times for this class will be given to those who

course satisfies hunter-safety training requirements for all other
states and Canadian provinces.
