Hunter education & safety

New in 2019: People with permanent physical disabilities may obtain a firearms hunting license with a provisional firearms safety certificate. In order to obtain a provisional firearms safety certificate, the individual will need to complete the classroom portion of the firearms safety program, and meet with a volunteer instructor regarding a provisional certification. While hunting, they must be accompanied and assisted by a parent, guardian or other adult.
