The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering a free hunter safety Internet-completion 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, Sept. 25. The range portion will be Sept. 26 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Apalachicola National Forest Range. Directions and a map to the range will be handed out in class.

Students must complete the Internet course before coming to class and bring a copy of the final report from the online portion of the course. The final report form does not have to be notarized.

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.

People interested in attending this course can register online and obtain information about future hunter safety classes at or by calling Hunter Safety Coordinator Will Burnett at the FWC’s regional office in Panama City at 850-265-3676.
