Hunter Education

You must complete a hunter education course to become an instructor. After that complete and return a volunteer application. Before becoming an instructor, you will have to attend a hunter education instructor workshop, pass an interview with the local game warden or program coordinator, teach a one hour segment of hunter education under the supervision of a certified instructor or game warden and pass a background check. For more information contact Lance Meek, Hunter Education Coordinator, at (405)522-4572.

All classroom materials are provided for you by the hunter education instructor. Be aware that most classes last 8 hours, the instructor will provide adequate breaks.  Be sure to preregister for your course if necessary. If your class is a home study course, bring along the home study portion (either the printed certificate or your completed workbook). DO NOT bring any firearms or ammunition to class.

Anyone can complete the online course, however you must be 10 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER to receive hunter education certification from the course. Make sure when you register for the class online that you enter the correct date of birth.
