Hunter Education

Although hunting is considered a fantastic experience by most, there are still hunting safety tips that everyone must abide by. For starters, an up to date hunting license is required for each individual hunter. Additionally, it is important to note that hunting licenses differ depending on your age, the state you are hunting in, and whether or not a hunting course is required to obtain the license. In Iowa, for instance, the law requires that anyone born after January 1st,1972 must be certified in hunter education before they are eligible to obtain his/her license.
