Note: There are some home study classes where you need to complete the home study work and/or turn it in before you can pre-register for the class.
If you are 10 or older and an Oklahoma resident you can complete the course online and print out your own Hunter Education card. Once complete you are fully certified and do not have to take additional class work. This option is great for last minute certification or adults that want to hunt out of state but not attend a full 8 hour class. Click here for the internet version of the Hunter Education course.
If a phone number is not listed, pre-registration is not required. Special arrangements and testing procedures can be made for persons with disabilities. Contact the Wildlife Department at (405) 521-4636 two weeks prior to course if person has disabilities which require special arrangements.
