Steps to Earning Your Hunter Safety Card
STEP 1: Study and pass the $19.50 ONLINE course (pay when you finish course), register at www.hunter-ed.com/washington
STEP 2: PRINT your course certificate & REGISTER for the Field Skills Evaluation Class location of your choice
STEP 3: PASS your skills evaluation & receive your hunter safety certificate
STEP 4: PURCHASE your hunting license and get ready to go hunting!
This REQUIRED classroom session must be taken AFTER successful completion of the self-paced home-study course (online course https://www.hunter-ed.com). Successful students must pass a written test, demonstrate safe firearm handling skills, and have a positive attitude.
Once you have passed the online course, paid the $19.50 and printed your online course certificate, you must register for the Field Skills Evaluation here https://www.register-ed.com/programs/95 — if you fail to register at that website you will not show up on our class list which means you will not be admitted into the class. We are not able to accommodate walk-ins as it would be unfair to those on the waiting list.
IMPORTANT DETAILS ABOUT THE CLASS DAY:
Please read this entire event listing before emailing or calling with questions:
PLEASE DO NOT BRING FIREARMS, HUNTING EQUIPMENT/SUPPLIES, OR HUNTING DOGS WITH YOU TO THIS CLASS — ALL SUPPLIES ARE PROVIDED.
IN ORDER TO ATTEND THIS COURSE, YOU MUST BRING WITH YOU A PRINTED COPY OF YOUR ONLINE COURSE COMPLETION CERTIFICATE AND $5 CASH TO PAY THE COURSE FEE WHEN YOU ARRIVE.
This is a 2 to 3 hour, non-live fire, classroom based course for those who have completed and passed the online material and are ready for the field skills evaluation. The course will consist of:
1.) REVIEW: An hour and half review of the online course material that covers topics related to: safety, firearms conservation, sportsmanship, archery/muzzle loader and first aid/survival. The expectation is that you know this material from your online course and the in-class review is intended to be a quick refresher before you take the written test in class.
2.) QUIZ: A 20 question written quiz covering the course material. Failure to pass the quiz will preclude students from certification.
3.) FIREARMS HANDLING SKILLS: This will be your opportunity to handle inert firearms from the five main action types.
4.) FIELD SKILL COURSE/TEST: This portion of the course will consist of 5 to 7 practical field scenarios that each student must successfully complete in order to pass the course. Elements of each scenario will test your skills in the following areas: muzzle control, selection of correct ammunition, show correct load/unload procedures, establish a safe zone of fire check, use of safe hunting practices, field carries, open/check action, safely cross obstacles, dealing with landowners, and hunting ethics.
A $5 class fee is required for each student and can be paid in advance via this website or at the door (CASH ONLY if paying at the door) to help cover the cost of course materials. If you pay here and decide to not attend the class, we are unable refund your class fee to your bankcard, but we are happy to send refund
ON TIME attendance is required along with a passing grade on the 20 question test as well as attendance and participation in the entire event in order to receive credit for the course.
