Hunter safety courses prevent accidents and save lives.
We’ve worked with IHEA-USA and more than 35 state agencies responsible for hunter education to develop comprehensive online hunter’s safety courses that teach students important laws and regulations, game identification, and safe, responsible firearm handling.
Hunting is a safe activity, and with the availability of hunter safety education, it is growing safer all the time. Over the last 50 years hunting related injury rates have decreased dramatically, even as populations of deer, wild turkey, elk, geese, and other species of game have risen to record numbers.IHEA
What hunters are saying about our online hunter’s safety course
“This site is outstanding! I am currently helping my son through the course, we are both enjoying it. I am not a novice hunter or shooter. I constantly reload and shoot various weapons. I have hunted since I was 10 years old and I am now 45 and I am even relearning stuff I had forgotten. You have set the bar high for other states to follow.”Roger, Hunter Ed student from West Virginia (read more testimonials)
“As an ex-combat infantry soldier, I can honestly say that the US Army could use this course in basic training to teach the new recruits. Very educational and the virtual learning is so simple even an 8th grader will understand it!”William, Hunter Ed student from North Carolina (read more testimonials)
The Hunter Education Course Curriculum
All Hunter Ed hunter safety education resources and hunter’s safety courses have been developed in conjunction with the state hunting safety agencies responsible for hunter education and are approved by the International Hunter Education Association.
Through comprehensive instructional content and illustrations, interactive learning exercises and games, and the best hunting safety videos available anywhere, students learn about firearms and ammunition, firearm safety, shooting fundamentals, and firearm and wildlife laws while completing a Hunter Ed state-approved safety course.
While our hunter education courses enable safer hunting, they also help hunters be more successful in their hunts—and emphasize ethical hunting behavior. Subjects covered include hunter responsibility, wildlife identification and management, game care, outdoor survival, and more.
