Finally I'm taking my hunter safety course on June 16th.
Didn't know the class was 10hrs but I have to get it done.
I've been wanting to hunt for the past 3 years.

Haha thanks Hunter.

The reason I took so long is because of my work schedule and of course I don't know anyone to go hunting with.

But as soon as I get my HL in hand I'll go take some guided hunts.

I did the online course so that I only have to go and sit in a room for a 4 hour class! :D

Did you know you can take the online portion, print out the certificate then only have to do the remaining three the next day?

How long does the online course take to complete?

It took me a couple nights of just sitting down and reading a few chapters each night. It really isn't that bad, and once you think your ready you take the practice exam you just take it. If you do good on the practice exam you take the real exam. If you pass that it costs $15 for the certificate and you can now go to the 4 hour class as opposed to the 12 hour or whatever it is.

Haha only reason I'm doing the 10hr class is because I get distracted to easily.
I'm to busy on Calguns or other boards hahaha constantly looking for new toys.

Thanks Biscuitbarrel.
I gotta ask how hard was the final test?
Is it pretty much common sense questions or exactly like the practice tests?

I took the 10 hour class with live fire three or four years ago, as long as you are awake you will do very good on the test. I missed one question because I filled in the wrong bubble by mistake. You will do just fine...

10h? Heh, I had to take a 40h class, not including four theoretical tests and four practical tests, ie static shooting with and without rest for group sizes, moving targets and clays. :)

Congrats...I took the class in Jan. It's not that bad and you only have to do it once in your life. I went to the class @ Angeles Shooting range. $10. best deal around.

What do you want to hunt?

It's not that hard actually, requires some studying and range time. Most people have some problems with the moving target test. It's a moving Moose target @ 80m, four shots all in the "kill zone", repeated three times, for a total of twelve hits for passing.

In my old hunting team (and it's the same with most teams back home) we had to pass the test pre-season every year to be allowed to hunt with the team.

Until the day comes that you need have your cert verifed and it is not in the system.......hmm then what does one do???

To daves100: Nothing like trying to defraud the system heh?....All to save $10 and a few hours of not sitting in a room watching videos. Is this how you got your license?

To the Rest: Remember, this Hunter Ed course is geared toward 9-10 yr olds passing it. It is not THAT hard.
