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.”
“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!”
