Just as the Cherokee Nation Fish and Wildlife Association believes all people should have the opportunity to learn to fish, it believes all people should have the opportunity to learn to hunt.
Hunter education classes can save lives. No one should hunt unprepared, whether in equipment or in knowledge.
Mandatory hunter education courses have reduced accidents in Oklahoma and in every state and Canadian province with similar programs. Hunter education covers a variety of topics including firearms safety, wildlife identification, wildlife conservation and management, survival, archery, muzzle loading and hunter responsibility.
