Online "Hunter Education Course"

Thread starter #1
I posted this originally as a reply to someone requesting help for his daughter in an essay project she was doing on "Hunters and Their Role in Conservation", but thought it might be of interest to others here and to make them aware of this new program in Hunter Education Certification.

Here's the link to it:

http://www.beasafehunter.org/


According to the opening page, this online course is available for 9 of the adjoining southeastern states, including Georgia and Florida. If you or a family member hasn't already taken a Hunter Education Course, or even if you/they have, this might be a good review. Sign up for the online course and work thru it.

For those of you from other nearby states, 'click' on the "Additional Resources" link at the left sidebar box to review the requirements for your particular state.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
In order to run this online course on your computer, YOU MUST DISABLE ANY POP-UP BLOCKER you have as part of an anti-spam/pop-up internet protection system.


ADDED NOTE:
For those in Georgia, you still must PRINT OUT THE FINAL TEST RESULTS and then go online at the following link and sign up for a 2 hr "Review and Test Course" at a local Hunter Education training location. You must take this PRINTED TEST RESULTS FORM WITH YOU TO THIS CLASS to get your Hunter Education Certificate when/if you pass the final exam.


Georgia Hunter Education Info & Registration:

http://www.gohuntgeorgia.com/content/displaynavigation.asp?TopCategory=7



I encourage other hunters to sign-up and review this online course, even if they might already have their Hunter Education Certification card. It will give you some knowledge to inform the anti/non-hunting public of the important roles that hunting and hunters play in wildlife conservation.


Pittman-Robertson Act:
The Federal Aid to Wildlife Restoration Program, commonly known as the Pittman-Robertson Act, is the most successful wildlife conservation program in the world. The program is also responsible for more beneficial activities and results than any other state-federal partnership in our country. The success of the program is due to sportsmen and sportswomen who have contributed billions of dollars to wildlife conservation through the purchase of sporting arms and ammunition.

PS:
Did you know that there were once large herds of elk in the Southeastern States?

"Pop-up" Blocker reactivating?

i tried to do the online safety course but my computer doesnt allow it to stay on long???? i tried to get through it answered alot of questions without reading anything but i get half way threw it and the screen goes away :confused:

If you've got 'Internet Security' or an active 'Pop-up Blocker' it may be preventing the Active-X files used to run the online Hunter Educ Crs from displaying properly. You should be able to go into the 'settings' of either one of them and add the link for the course into the 'accepted' list or program links allowed to run 'pop-ups' or 'Active-X" programs. You've got to set this to ALWAYS ALLOW this program link to run such files.

This may (?) solve your problem or you may have some 'Spyware' programs running in the background affecting your computer's performance.

Just a reminder about hunter safety cards:

Thanks for posting this information. I would also like to remind members that when big game hunting out of state, you may be required to show proof of hunter education course completion. I will be deer hunting in Ohio this fall and it is my understanding that I will be required to present a hunter education certificate prior to purchasing my non-resident big game license. I had misplaced mine many years ago. I called DNR in Macon @478-751-6415 and the nice lady was able to pull it up on the computer and mail me a new card. Looking for a great time in the woods this fall.

Hello, I've got my 10yr old daughter signed up for a class. Since it's been just shy of 30 years since I took my class in TN I was just wondering what all is involved in the class room portion? I just want to have her as prepared as possible.

Thankyou,

LY

This thread is related to the ONLINE HUNTER EDUCATION COURSE. Is the class you have your daughter signed up for the "online course" or the "full classroom course".... also, are you talking about the Hunter Education Course for Georgia or Tenn? If for Tenn, then you need to contact someone who's familiar with the Tenn. Hunter Education requirements since some states have different standards for their courses and training requirements. I am only familiar with Georgia Hunter Education requirements.

For those of you from other nearby states, 'click' on the "Additional Resources" link at the left sidebar box to review the requirements for your particular state.

The "2 Hour Review Class" is for those who have completed either the GA CD-Rom or "Online Crs.".... it consist of a short review of the main and important points that will be included on the final exam, and then the written exam itself (which consist of 35 multiple-choice and 15 True/False questions).

If you're talking about the "full classroom course", then PM me for more info on the GA Hunter Education Crs requirements and training.

She's currently taking the GA online course and I have her signed up for the two hour class.

I was just wondering what all will be involved in the "2 Hour Review Class". When I took it in TN almost 30 years ago we had the written test and then a hands on demonstration that you had to pass as well.

It looks like she'll get a review and then a written test on what is covered in the "review". Is this correct?

Current GA Hunter Education Crs requirements DO NOT include a 'hands on' portion that some other states require. I can only speak for how WE DO IT at Augusta-Richmond County area training, but we basically do a quick summary of all the important and major safety issues of Hunter Education during our 'review'. This is done in about one hour.... so you need to have covered the course fundamentals on your own first in order to do well on the test that follows. I'm sure she'll do OK on the exam if she's completed the on-line course without too much difficulty. It's mostly just "common-sense" and paying attention to what's repeated MORE THAN ONCE during the 'review'.

NOTE:
Be sure to print out a copy of the results of her "on-line final test" and bring it with you to the "2 Hour Review Class".

bfriendly,
It took some 'searching' since I'm not that familiar with the county layout around Atlanta. It seems there ARE NOT any Hunter Education Classes in Cobb County..... so what you'll need to do is find one that is available in one of your neighboring counties and attend it. I found a few by going to the DNR web site for Cobb county and then clicking on the link for see statewide map of classes below the calendar displayed. It brings up a calendar of the month with classes scheduled at various counties by date. You'll need to search it for one that is close to you with comments similar to this link for Gwinnet County scheduled for 7 Feb 2009 (hope the link works). It reads as shown below.

Status Date/Time Location Notes
Class is full 2/7/2009

10:00 am - 1:00 pm Rhodes Jordan Park
100 East Crogan Street
Lawrenceville

Located 3 blocks from Lawrenceville Town Square.

Must complete 6 hour review @ www.beasafehunter.org before attending class and must bring test results to class.
Even though it may show "Class is Full" in the remarks section, due to 'no shows' most instructors allow 'walk'ins' to attend and test. The only difference is that you will have to fill out a 'green registration card' which has a temporary Hunter Ed card attached to it. Sit thru the 2 hr review and 1 hour for testing (total time 2-3 hours). Just be sure to take your copy of the 'online course test results' with you to the class.

The above is just one example I found. I found another for Fulton County too for 16 Feb 2009 (they still have openings). See example below.

You can search the GA wide calendar link for other available classes too. Keep in mind that this time of year is the 'off-time' for most classes in many areas due to deer season already finished. Many don't have classes open from March thru August each year due to poor turnouts. Remember we are 'volunteer' and not 'paid instructors'.

At least now you hopefully see how you can locate these classes. Hope this helps. :biggrin2:
