About the Event
This course is coordinated by the West Seattle Sportsmans Club, conducted in cooperation with the Seattle Police Athletic Association. The class will begin promptly at the designated time, so be sure to arrive early, as the doors may close promptly. We will be in class Thursday and Friday from 6:30-9:30 PM, Saturday 9AM-5PM, and Sunday 9AM-1PM
Be sure to come prepared to learn, and bring with you:
*pencil and personal notepad.
*If under age 18, completed and signed Parent Agreement (permission) Form.
*$5 facility fee, cash or check made payable to SPAA.
*personal snacks and beverages.
Students are required to attend all sessions to be eligible for the course exam, and, since this is a real-world, hands-on course, notepads and laptops are unsuitable for note-taking.
Hunter education classes focus on three broad topical areas:
- Firearms and outdoor safety;
- Wildlife management; and,
- Hunter responsibility.
IMPORTANT Because of noise and recoil considerations, women who are or may be pregnant may wish to consult a physician before participating in or being in close proximity to live-fire activities.
Successful students must pass a written test, demonstrate safe firearm handling skills, and have a positive attitude.
There is no minimum age required to enroll in hunter education, but instructors may require a parent or guardian to attend all classes if students are under 12 years of age.
About the Class
All hunter education classes are taught by instructors certified by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
The classes include lectures, video, and hands-on training exercises.
The average class includes 4 – 6 sessions spanning 16+ hours.
