"The Hunter Education Course objectives are:
"Students are required to attend all class sessions including all field day exercises. The class is an interactive course with several "hand-on" experiences. Students are expected to participate in all activities. the final exam consists of a 40 question written test and also a "gun handling" assessment. Both are given individually to each student on the last day of class. There are also homework assignments, called chapter reviews
in the back of their manual, that the students must
complete. Thereafter, our new graduates will become
our future safe hunters and shooters."
