The state Department of Land and Natural Resources’ Hunter Education Program has announced that beginning Dec. 1, 2017, registration for all hunter education classes statewide will be available online.

Free online registration for all class offerings is open to adult students.

To register online, adult students must be at least 18 or older on the day of the class. An email address is required to complete registration online. However, an existing account is not required.

“It’s our hope that this initiative will help increase accessibility to hunter education classes statewide,” said Andrew Choy, Hunter Education Program manager. “Access to classes and clear information on hunting in Hawai‘i goes hand-in-hand with promoting hunting statewide and increasing access and opportunities for new and seasoned hunters.”

“I’d like to reinforce that hunter education is not just for hunters or about hunting—our course starts on the foundation of responsible wildlife management, conservation and hunters’ ethics; we build on this foundation to cover a wide range of subjects including: firearms and archery safety, rules and regulations, first aid and survival, and game care,” Choy said. “By creating an accessible internet portal, we place control in people’s hands to explore hunter education and hunting opportunities in Hawai‘i on their own terms.”
