Washington Field Skills Evaluation for On-line Course


Hunter education classes focus on three broad topical areas:

  • Firearms and outdoor safety;
  • Wildlife management; and
  • Hunter responsibility.

IMPORTANT Because of noise and recoil considerations, women who are or may be pregnant may wish to consult a physician before participating in or being in close proximity to live-fire activities.
