The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering a free hunter safety Internet-completion course in Okaloosa County.
The course takes place at Bass Pro Shops, 4301 Legendary Drive, Destin. Instruction is from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 28 and 30, and attendance is required at both class sessions.
Students must complete the Internet course before coming to class and bring a copy of the final report from the online portion of the course. The final report form does not have to be notarized.
An adult must accompany children under the age of 16 at all times. Students should bring a pencil and paper with them to take notes.
Anyone born on or after June 1, 1975, must pass an approved hunter safety course and have a hunting license to hunt alone (unsupervised). The FWC course satisfies hunter-safety training requirements for all other states and Canadian provinces.
People interested in attending this course can register online and obtain information about future hunter safety classes at MyFWC.com/HunterSafety or by calling Hunter Safety Coordinator Will Burnett at the FWC’s regional office in Panama City at 850-265-3676.
