The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering a free hunter safety course in Leon County.
The course takes place at the FWC’s headquarters, in the second-floor conference room #272 of the Bryant Building, 620 S. Meridian Street, Tallahassee. Instruction is from 6 to 9 p.m. EST June 16, 18, 23 and 25. The range portion will be June 27 from8 a.m. to noon at the Apalachicola National Forest Range. Directions and a map to the range will be handed out in class.
An adult must accompany children under the age of 16 at all times. Students should bring a pencil and paper with them to take notes.
Anyone born on or after June 1, 1975, must pass an approved hunter safety course and have a hunting license to hunt alone (unsupervised). The FWC course satisfies hunter-safety training requirements for all other states and Canadian provinces.
