Hunter safety course offered in September for Madison County


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering a free traditional hunter safety course for Madison County. The class is Sept. 4, 5 and 6 from 7 to 10 p.m. with a range day Sept. 9 from 1 p.m. until complete. The class and range day will be held in Madison.

All firearms, ammunition and materials are provided free of charge. Students should bring a pen or pencil and paper. An adult must accompany children younger than 16 at all times. Students must attend all sessions to receive their certificate.

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.

The specific locations for this class will be given to those who register in advance. Those interested in attending a course can register online and obtain information about future hunter safety classes at or by calling the FWC’s regional office in Lake City at 386-758-0525.
