Find a Hunter Ed Class

ODWC offers two options to take the Hunter Education course

Online Course

If you are 10 or older and an Oklahoma resident you can complete the course online and print out your own Hunter Education card.  Once complete you are fully certified and do not have to take additional class work.  This option is great for last minute certification or adults that want to hunt out of state but not attend a full 8 hour class.

Classroom only courses
