Hunter-Ed.com’s online hunters safety course material is free to the public. Students take the fast-paced hunters safety course online from the convenience of home as it fits their schedule. When they complete the online course, students pay $19.50 to print out a Field Day Qualifier Exam Certificate that admits them to a mandatory Field Course (pre-registration required). The Field Course includes a skills trail, live firing exercise, ethics presentation, review and final hunter education exam. Successful students are then eligible to purchase a hunting license.

In addition to the online hunter education option (http://www.Hunter-Ed.com/tx/), the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has chosen Hunter-Ed.com to provide classroom hunter safety course manuals since 2004. The traditional classroom hunter education course averages 10-14 hours of instruction over two or more days. All Hunter-Ed.com students learn the same hunter education material, whether it’s taught in the classroom course or online. Texas students simply choose the hunters education learning method that’s right for them.

Mr. Terry Erwin, Hunter Education Coordinator for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, says “Hunter-Ed.com, one of the online courses available, is uniquely qualified to meet the requirements of the Texas Hunter Education Program. Their course content and presentation has been refined through extensive review by firearm safety and hunter education authorities within Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Hunter-Ed.com saves students time by offering the online course, part of Hunter-Ed’s complete and consistent suite of hunter education materials. Remember to check availability of the required Field Course in your area before completing an online course.”

Successfully completing a hunters education course is required for all Texas hunters born on or after September 2, 1971. About 30,000 students complete a Texas hunter education course each year, and the statistics show hunter education training is a success. Hunting accidents have been significantly reduced since hunter education became mandatory.

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/).
