Hunter education safety requirements
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources requires all Hunters born on or after August 1, 1977 to complete a State approved Hunter education course prior to purchasing a Hunting License.
Become a safe hunter
The purpose of hunter education is to develop knowledge, skills, and behaviors necessary to become safe, responsible hunters.
The online course
Typically, students meet these needs by attending a traditional, instructor led course including classroom lectures and field/range experiences. In today's society, students have less free time to devote to attending a hunter education course. Online hunter education courses help address this, by allowing students to take hunter safety courses on their own time, at their own pace and in the comfort of their home or office.
