The fall hunting season is around the corner which means students across Mississippi will begin participating in Hunter Education courses led by MDWFP instructors. Beginning July 6, students will be required to pre-register for courses online at www.mdwfp.com.
There is no cost to attend a MDWFP Hunter Education course; however, Hunter Education certification is required to purchase a hunting license if you are born on or after January 1, 1972. In order to become certified in Hunter Education, persons must be at least ten years of age, complete the entire course, score 70 percent or higher on the hunter education exam, and demonstrate safety with a firearm.
