Presented by Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation Warden Chad Strang, hunter education covers a variety of topics including firearms safety, wildlife identification, wildlife conservation and management, survival, archery, muzzleloading and hunter responsibility. This is a standard 8-hour course. There is no specific age requirement to enroll in hunter education, but the minimum recommended age is 10.
Over the past 30 years, hunting related accidents and fatalities have declined by more than 70 percent in Oklahoma. Mandatory hunter education courses have not only reduced accidents within Oklahoma, but also in every state and Canadian province with similar programs.
