Share Article

Hunter-Ed.com has launched a new Georgia hunter education course, just in time for the fall hunting season. Students take the fast-paced hunters safety course online when it fits their schedule. Students then attend a 2-hour review hunter education course led by Georgia hunter safety instructors. Successful students receive their hunter education certificate before leaving the review, and are eligible to purchase a season hunting license. (http://www.Hunter-Ed.com/Georgia/.)

These days, very few people can devote an entire weekend or multiple week nights to take the 10-hour classroom hunting course. The Hunter-Ed.com online course saves time and money, and opens up hunting opportunities for young people.

Geared toward young people, Hunter-Ed.com’s hunting safety course is narrated, so students can listen, read, or both. Quiz questions are read out loud, and include pictures to help students recall what they’ve learned. Hundreds of detailed illustrations and animations give students a clear idea of what to expect once they’re in the field. Although it’s kid-friendly, the hunting and firearm safety content is very comprehensive.

This new Georgia hunter safety course is similar to the recently-launched Hunter-Ed.com Alabama course. Joshua Burnett wrote to Hunter-Ed.com: “Your site has been great. I am a Marine and have had countless hours behind all sorts of weapons but the information I have received from your course has been irreplaceable. I thought it was gonna be a drag and boring, but I have actually enjoyed the course very much.”

Successfully completing a hunter education course is mandatory for most Georgia hunting license buyers born on or after January 1, 1961. In addition to the online hunter education option, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources selected Hunter-Ed.com to provide hunter safety courses via CD-ROM and traditional classroom student manuals. All Hunter-Ed.com students learn the same hunter education material, whether it’s taught in the classroom, via CD-ROM, or online. However, students have the flexibility to choose the hunters education learning method that’s right for them.

“We are thrilled to add two new online options for hunter education,” says Assistant Chief of Game Management Rusty Garrison. “These courses are great options, especially with young hunters or those whose schedules do not allow time to fit in the traditional classroom course.” Hunter-Ed.com’s online hunters safety course (http://www.Hunter-Ed.com/Georgia/) material is free to the public. Students pay $19.50 to print out a Completion Session Entrance Voucher that admits them to the in-person review session.

Since 2002, more than 1 million students have taken a Hunter-Ed.com hunter safety course. “We are gratified that so many state agencies and students have selected Hunter-Ed.com to be their hunter education partner,” says Kurt Kalkomey, President. “Hunter-Ed.com continually innovates so that we can introduce more folks to the rich heritage of hunting. Our motto is ‘Get safe, get certified’ so you can maximize your enjoyment of the outdoors. These days, very few people can devote an entire weekend or multiple week nights to take the 10-hour classroom hunting course. The Hunter-Ed.com online course saves time and money, and opens up hunting opportunities for young people.”

Hunter-Ed.com is a division of Kalkomey, Inc. which publishes more than 190 hunter education products selected by 48 states. For more information about official hunter safety courses and state requirements for hunters education, please visit Hunter-Ed.com (http://www.Hunter-Ed.com/).
