Hunter Ed Course

August 13, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm CDT

This course is designed for novice or young hunters, ages 9 years and above. The course covers the core competencies of firearm and hunting safety, hunting ethics and wildlife conservation. All materials are provided. The Hunter Education Classroom Course lasts a maximum of 6 hours of classroom instruction. This time does not include registration, breaks, test administration and certification card distribution. Courses are offered across the state year round and are taught by certified volunteer instructors. The fee for the certification is $15. Some instructors may apply additional charges for the class, such as range or facility fees. Pre-registration is required. Check with the instructor for directions and any special instructions prior to going to class.

Be sure to verify with the instructor that the class you are registering for is the Classroom Course.

You may also contact your local Texas Parks and Wildlife Department office or call TPWD Austin headquarters at 1-800-792-1112, ext. 4999.

When you arrive at the course:

  1. Pay the fee to the instructor.
  2. Attend the entire course.
  3. Take the written exam and get at least 75% correct to pass.
  4. Upon successful completion, you may receive a temporary card from the instructor. You may legally hunt with a valid Texas hunting license and your temporary certification card. Your permanent Texas Hunter Education certification card will be available for downloading and printing from your Account Profile.
This is the classroom Hunter Education course from 9am until 3pm. After successful completion of the course, students will have access to their hunter education certificates. The class is at Sheepdog Marksmanship Training classroom and range outside of Gatesville.  I provide drinks and snacks, but ask that you bring any other food for the day.  Payment can be made in cash, check, Venmo, or other digital payment apps.  We will NOT have a separate lunch break.  There will be no live fire in this course, but separate arrangements can be made.
