Hunter Education Program

In a continued effort to reduce firearm accidents, the State of California requires all first time resident hunters, regardless of age, to complete hunter education training or pass a comprehensive equivalency test before purchasing a hunting license. In collaboration with volunteer instructors, CDFW provides for hunter education throughout the state.
