Classes to be held in DeFuniak Feb. 5-7

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering a free hunter safety course in Walton County.

The course will be at the Shooting Range, 955 Smith Rd. in DeFuniak Springs. Instruction will be from 6-9 p.m. Feb. 5 and 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Feb. 6.  The range portion of the class will be Feb. 7.

Those who have taken the Internet course and wish to complete the classroom portion must bring the online-completion report and attend only the Feb. 5 class from 6 to 10 p.m. and the Feb. 7 range day.

An adult must accompany children under age 16 at all times.  Students should bring a pencil and paper with them to take notes.
The hunter safety course is required before anyone born on or after June 1, 1975, can purchase a Florida hunting license.  The FWC course satisfies hunter safety training requirements for all other states and Canadian provinces.

    1. My son is 20 years old he is in the Air Force at Hurlburt Field. He has taken the online course and is needing to attend the course. According to the web site he cant take it till Dec. 5th. He is not going to be able to take it that day due to military training. He wants to hunt as soon as possible. He is fully qualified with firearms through the military. He wont be home very long so is there any way this can be done another way?
