In 1991, the Alabama Legislature passed legislation that requires all first time hunting license buyers born on or after August 1, 1977, to complete a hunter education course prior to purchasing their first hunting license. Alabama is one of 49 states that has a mandatory hunter education program. The goal of the Hunter Education Program is to make Alabama hunters more responsible and more knowledgeable about wildlife conservation.
The Hunter Education Course is a minimum of 10 hours of instruction plus a written examination. Students will be given a written exam to test for certification on the last night of class. The course includes but is not limited to firearm safety and handling, responsible hunting and hunter ethics, wildlife law, wildlife management and identification, archery, muzzle loading, first aid, survival, and game care.
There is no charge to attend this course or to take the certification exam. Participants must be age 10 years old or older to attend the class and receive certification. Participants will need to bring their social security card with them on the first night of class. For more information call (334) 493-5347 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
