Florida bowhunters will have an opportunity to attend a National Bowhunter Education Foundation certified bowhunter education course in Citrus, Duval or Columbia counties in September.
The course will be conducted using the online, distance-learning format. A bowhunting enthusiast can access the program on the NBEF website by entering through the Florida portal and completing the online classroom topics, before attending a shortened, interactive field day. The Florida course is found at Bowhunter-ed.com/Florida.

The course is offered by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Hunter Safety Section and the Florida Bowhunters Council.
