In 1975, the hunter education programs were introduced and the number of related firearm and hunting accidents in Tennessee have declined. These programs are offered to provide instruction and guidance to students in the field of hunter ethics and wildlife management.

The course is offered free of charge for those nine years of age or older. (Online courses are available, but there is a charge.) There is a minimum of 10 hours of classroom participation and the classes last 12-16 hours over the four-day period. A written test must be passed and all students are required to participate in a live-fire exercise. All classes MUST be attended. The child’s social security card is required ON the first day as well as a pencil.

This course is provided by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.
