Learn to Hunt, No Outdoors Required


Learning how to hunt is now as easy as logging onto to the Internet.

has launched a new online class in Colorado providing would-be hunters with a safety course designed to engage students using a combination of text, illustrations and animations.

Students learn about hunter responsibility, wildlife identification and management, game care and outdoor survival — as well as receive introductions to hunting with bows and black powder firearms — all via their browser.

The new version of the course offers an optional narration feature allowing students to listen or read the instructions. Exam questions also are read out loud and include illustrations to help students recall what they’ve learned.

"The upgrades to Hunter-ed.com really make the material better for students, especially younger students," Mark Cousins, hunter education coordinator for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, said in a prepared release. "The way the material is broken up into short segments, along with the audio track, makes it better for learning."

Additionally, the course is offered free of charge until the student passes their final exam — a step required to receive a hunting license.  The student is charged $24.95 once they pass the test and receive their certificate.

Kalkomey Enterprises Inc., the parent company of Hunter-ed.com, is the official provider of recreational safety education materials throughout the United States. Based in Dallas, the company offers safety courses in boating, hunting, bow hunting, and off-road vehicle and snowmobile operation.
