Hunter's Ed on CD-ROM
Hunter Education is
mandatory in Tennessee for anyone born on or after January 1, 1969;
however, some hunters find it difficult to make time for the course
because of work or school schedules.
That is why the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is
experimenting with a CD ROM home-education course that allows students to
study when time allows, provided they complete the CD prior to attending a
field day to test their
"The CD ROM course is not a replacement for the traditional hunter
education course we teach in a classroom setting," explained Don Crawford,
hunter education coordinator for TWRA's Region III office on the
"What we are attempting is do is just fill a niche for those
people who find it hard to attend the traditional class which lasts some
4-6 nights. It is for those who work the 2nd and 3rd shifts, one-parent
families, and students with studies or extracurricular activities such as
baseball, band, football, etc.," stated Crawford.
Like the traditional class, the CD ROM course is also free. This
class is not any easier. If anything, it is a little more difficult. One
must answer a series of quiz questions throughout each section and then
successfully pass a 50 questions test at the completion of the CD ROM.
Then the student must attend a field day for more testing which will be
given orally by instructors, successfully pass a 100 questions test, and
complete a live firing exercise.
