This course is particularly suited to novice or young hunters. All materials are provided and subjects are covered in depth to enable the student to successfully complete the Hunter Education certification process.

Texas offers two options: 1) a two-day course of approximately 14 hours, or 2) Online course with a one-day Field Course. The cost of either is $15. We concentrate our efforts on conducting the One-Day Field Course.
