Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association is offering a free online Experienced Hunter Education Course for those preparing to take advantage of the upcoming hunting season.
“As a result of COVID travel restrictions, states have seen a considerable increase in the number of hunting license sales,” said Peter Churchbourne, director of NRA’s Hunters Leadership Forum. “Our Experienced Hunter Education Course provides those who might have taken a season or two off a convenient way to sharpen their skills before heading back into the field.”
NRA’s free 2-hour course is a firearm and hunting safety-training refresher in a convenient and engaging platform available through desktop, tablet, or smartphone. The course is available to everyone at www.NRAEHE.org.
The course is not a substitute for state-mandated hunter safety requirements and does not offer any certifications.
“The NRA’s long-term goal is for everyone to have a safe and productive hunting adventure, especially for those who depend on hunting to put food on their table. Whether you end the season with a 12-point buck or a tale of near misses, the important part is to make the most of your outdoor experience. NRA’s Experienced Hunter Education Course is great step towards making that possibility a reality,” Churchbourne concluded.
This free refresher course is available courtesy of the organization that created America’s first hunter education course. Also available at no charge, and accepted by Connecticut, Florida, Kentucky, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, and West Virginia as valid hunter education certification, you can find this course at www.NRAHE.org.
