Education

Is there an age limit?

Students under the age of 10 may attend a hunter education class, but will not be allowed to take the test or get a card.

What is Hunter Education?

Hunter education covers a variety of topics including firearms safety, wildlife identification, wildlife conservation and management, survival, archery, muzzleloading and hunter responsibility. It is available online, 4-hour home study, or an 8-hour traditional course.

Why Hunter Education?

Over the past 40 years, hunting related accidents and fatalities have declined by more than 70 percent in Oklahoma. Mandatory hunter education courses have not only reduced accidents within Oklahoma, but also in every state and Canadian province with similar programs.

There is no specific age requirement to enroll in hunter education but the minimum recommended age is 10. Oklahoma's hunter education program is recognized in all states as well as in Canada and Mexico.
