The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering free hunter safety courses in five counties in April (list follows).

Students who have taken the online course and wish to complete the classroom portion must bring the online-completion report with them.

All firearms, ammunition and materials are provided free of charge. Students should bring a pen or pencil and paper. An adult must accompany children younger than 16 at all times.
