      Important Facts about your Hunter Education certification

      • Certification is good for life.
      • Texas certification is honored by other states and provinces requiring hunter education.
      • You must carry proof of certification or deferral on your person while hunting.
      • Proof of certification is NOT required to purchase a license.

      Who needs to take Hunter Education?

      Every hunter (including out-of-state hunters) born on or after Sept. 2, 1971, must successfully complete hunter education. Minimum age for certification is 9 years and cost is $15.

      If you were born on or after September 2, 1971 and you are:

      • under 9 years of age, you must be accompanied*.
      • age 9 through 16, you must successfully complete hunter education, OR you must be accompanied.
      • age 17 and over, you must successfully complete hunter education; OR purchase a “Hunter Education Deferral,” and you must be accompanied.

      What does "accompanied" mean?

      Accompanied means: By a person who is at least 17, who is licensed to hunt in Texas, who has passed hunter education or is exempt (born before Sept. 2, 1971), and you must be within normal voice control. Proof of certification or deferral is required to be on your person while hunting. Note: Proof of certification is not required to purchase a hunting license.

      Do I qualify for a Hunter Education Deferral?

      Any person 17 years of age or older who has not completed hunter education may defer completion for up to one year. A deferral may only be obtained once and is only valid until the end of the current license year. You must be accompanied while hunting if you have a deferral. Note: The one-time Hunter Education Deferral is available at license vendors and costs $10. A person who has been convicted or has received deferred adjudication for violation of the mandatory hunter education requirement is prohibited from applying for a deferral.

      I lost my certification card. How do I get a replacement?

      You may now print a copy of your certification. Failure to carry proof of certification or deferral while hunting is a Class C, Parks and Wildlife Code Misdemeanor which is punishable by a fine not less than $25 nor more than $500.

      How long has this been law?

      "Mandatory" hunter education became law in 1988. Since 1972, Texas Parks & Wildlife Department has offered hunter education courses which have certified over one million students.

      How long is the course?

      There are 3 courses taught by TPWD Certified Instructors. The Basic Course is a maximum of 6 hours classroom instruction. This time does not include registration, breaks, test administration and certification card distribution. The Enhanced Course has two parts: online coursework completed beforehand, then one-day Field Course/Skills Trail is a minimum of 4 hours, but may extend longer. The Extended Course is over 6 hours. There is also a self-paced Online Course for Complete Certification that is restricted to persons that are 17 years of age or older.

      What does the course cover?

      • The Classroom Course covers the core standards in Firearm, Hunting and Outdoor Safety, Hunting Responsibilities and Wildlife Conservation. Some classroom courses are extended to cover additional topics such as Bowhunting, Muzzleloaders, Outdoor Survival and First Aid.
      • The Online + Field Course covers the core standards plus more information delivered to you through several commercially-available providers. The Field Course is comprised of hands-on skills and live -fire exercises provided to you by a certified instructor.
      • The Online-Only Course covers all the information included in the online + Field Course, but is an option only available to those 17 years of age and older.

      What is the cost of the course?

      The classroom and field courses provided by hunter education instructors cost $15. Note: Some instructors may charge additional fees associated with a shooting range or particular facility. The fee for the Online Course options is determined by the independent providers offering such training.

      Can I fail this course?

      Yes, you can fail the course because of unsatisfactory knowledge, skill or attitude as evaluated by your instructor. The minimum score on the final exam is 75 percent. However, if you achieve a higher score, but are determined to lack safe skills in live-firing or field exercises, or as a result of classroom disruptions, attitude, or incomplete attendance, you may fail the course.

      Do I need the Hunter Education Certificate to purchase a hunting license?

      No, you are not required to show your certification when you purchase a license, but proof of certification or "deferral" is required to be on your person while hunting.

      I'm a bowhunter. Do I need the same certification?

      Additional bowhunter education courses are available. This does not replace hunter education. Texas hunters who fall in the required age classes must complete Hunter Education regardless of the type of sporting arm used or species hunted. Bowhunter Education is mandatory in some states and provinces. Bowhunter education is a two-day course.

      I am in the military/law enforcement. Does the law still apply to me?

      Military/Law Enforcement Exemptions

      Except as required by federal or local jurisdictions and/or private landowners, the following persons are exempt from requirements to complete a hunter education course to hunt in Texas:

      I have a license to carry a concealed handgun. Do I still need the certification?

      Yes, some of the safety training may be similar; however, Hunter Education includes many topics that are not part of handgun education. There are no exemptions from this requirement.

      I took Hunter Education in another state. Do I still need to take the Texas course?

      No, Texas recognizes Hunter Education certificates from all other states and provinces. You will need to carry a proof of that certification on your person while hunting in Texas. We cannot duplicate Hunter Education certification from other states and provinces, you will need to contact the agency that regulates Hunter Education in that state.

      I want to hunt out-of-state. Will my Texas Hunter Education certificate be recognized?

      Yes, all states and provinces requiring hunter education recognize your Texas certification. You must carry your certification card with you as proof.

      When I call the contact number listed, I get an answering machine. Why can't I talk to an instructor?

      Hunter Education instructors are volunteers and many work regular jobs and may not be available when you try to contact them. Most list their home numbers as the contact. Try calling early in the evening after work or leave a message for them to call you back. Leave your name and a contact phone number. Leaving your name only on the message does not confirm your place in the class. If you have additional questions, please feel free to call our office at 1-800-792-1112 ext. 4999.

      Online + Field Course

      The Online + Field Course is ideal for older youth and adult hunters who have been shooting and/or hunting. For younger students, adults should assist them with the online course and accompany them during the field course. Certification fee is $15. Some instructors may charge an added range or facility fee based on location and use.

      The certification process consists of two parts:

      1. Online coursework: Complete the FREE TPWD or NRA online course.

      Shooting Safety Rules

      Rules Hunters Can Live By . . . Ten Commandments of Shooting Safety

      1. Always point the muzzle in a safe direction.
        Control the direction of the muzzle at all times. Do not point a firearm or bow at anything you do not intend to shoot. Never rest a muzzle on your toe or foot. Keep your finger out of the trigger guard until the instant you are ready to fire. Always keep the safety on until ready to fire; however, the safety should never be a substitute for safe firearm handling.
      2. Treat every firearm or bow with the same respect you would show a loaded gun or nocked arrow.
        Every time you pick up a firearm, the first thing you do is point the muzzle in a safe direction and check to see if it is loaded. Be sure the chamber and magazine are empty and that the action is open until ready to be fired. If you do not understand how to determine if it is loaded, do not accept the firearm until someone has safely shown you that it is unloaded. Read your instruction manual carefully before you handle new firearms or bows.
      3. Be sure of your target and what is in front of and beyond your target.
        Before you pull the trigger you must properly identify game animals. Until your target is fully visible and in good light, do not even raise your scope to see it. Use binoculars! Know what is in front of and behind your target. Determine that you have a safe backstop or background. Since you do not know what is on the other side, never take a shot at any animals on top of ridges or hillsides. Know how far bullets, arrows and pellets can travel. Never shoot at flat, hard surfaces, such as water, rocks or steel because of ricochets.
      4. Unload firearms and unstring conventional bows when not in use.
        Leave actions open, and store sporting arms in cases when traveling to and from shooting areas. Take bolts out or break down shotguns if necessary. Know how your equipment operates. Store and transport firearms and ammunition separately and under lock and key. Store firearms and bows in cool, dry places. Use gun or trigger locks and guards when not in use.
      5. Handle the firearms, arrows and ammunition carefully.
        Avoid horseplay with firearms. Never climb a fence, a tree or a ladder with a loaded firearm or bow and arrows. Never jump a ditch or cross difficult terrain with a loaded firearm or nocked arrow. Never face or look down the barrel from the muzzle end. Be sure the only ammunition you carry correctly matches the gauge or caliber you are shooting. Always carry arrows in a protected cover or quiver. Learn the proper carries. Try to use the two-hand carry whenever possible because it affords you the best muzzle control. Always carry handguns with hammers over an empty chamber or cylinder. If you fall, be sure to disassemble the gun and check the barrel from the breech end for obstructions. Carry a field cleaning kit.
      6. Know your safe zone-of-fire and stick to it.
        Your safe zone-of-fire is that area or direction in which you can safely fire a shot. It is "down range" at a shooting facility. In the field it is that mental image you draw in your mind with every step you take. Be sure you know where your companions are at all times. Never swing your gun or bow out of your safe zone-of-fire. Know the safe carries when there are persons to your sides, in front of, or behind you. If in doubt, never take a shot. When hunting, wear daylight fluorescent orange so you can be seen from a distance or in heavy cover.
      7. Control your emotions when it comes to safety.
        If you lose control of your emotions you may do something carelessly. If you have just shot a target or animal you probably will be excited. At that moment you may turn with a loaded firearm back towards your friends or you might run with a loaded firearm towards a downed animal with the gun safety off. You or someone else may be in anger once you lose control of your emotions. Show discipline. Rehearse in your mind what the safe actions will be. Do not allow your daydreams to replace good judgment. Show restraint and pass up shots which have the slightest chance of being unsafe.
      8. Wear hearing and eye protection.
        While shooting at the range, you must wear hearing and eye protection at all times. Firearms are loud and can create noises which are damaging to a person's hearing. It can be a gradual loss of hearing due to outbursts of noise over many years. The damage could also be immediate, especially if your ears are next to a muzzle blast. Vibrations from the blast are enough to create loss of hearing. Wear glasses to protect your eyes from escaping gases, burnt powder (especially in blackpowder shooting), and other debris.
      9. Don't drink alcohol or take drugs before or while handling firearms or bow and arrows.
        Alcohol and drugs impair normal physical and mental body functions and mustn't be used before or while handling firearms or archery equipment. These substances affect emotions, making it easier to lose control.
      10. Be aware of additional circumstances which require added caution or safety awareness.
        Just because something isn't listed under these "ten commandments of shooting safety" doesn't mean you can ignore it if it is dangerous. There may be rules such as in muzzleloading or archery or posted at a shooting range which should also be followed. Also, practice reloading safety by following and reading all specific instructions. Practice all commandments of shooting safety. Ensure a safe future for you, others and the shooting sports!

      Basic Hunter Ed Course

      Go to Hunter Education Course Registration System

      Designed for novice or young hunters, ages 9 years and above, the course covers:

      • the core competencies of firearm and hunting safety,
      • hunting ethics and
      • wildlife conservation.
      • All materials are provided and subjects are covered to enable the student to successfully complete the Hunter Education certification process.

      The Basic Hunter Education Course lasts a maximum of 6 hours of classroom instruction. This time does not include registration, breaks, test administration and certification card distribution. Courses are offered across the state year round and are taught by certified volunteer instructors. The fee for the certification is $15. Some instructors may apply additional charges for the class, such as range or facility fees.

      Pre-registration is required. Check with the instructor for directions and any special instructions prior to going to class.

      We are currently transitioning to a new registration system. For the present time, both Basic and Extended Basic Classes are listed on the registration system. Be sure to verify with the instructor that the class you are registering for is the Basic Course.

       

      You may also contact your local Texas Parks and Wildlife Department office or call TPWD Austin headquarters at 1-800-792-1112, ext. 62.

      When you arrive at the course:

      • Pay the $15 fee to the instructor.
      • Attend the entire course.
      • Take the written exam and get at least 75% correct to pass.
      • Upon successful completion, you will receive a temporary card. Your instructor will send in the originals for processing. You may legally hunt with a valid Texas hunting license and your temporary certification card. Your permanent Texas Hunter Education certification card will be mailed out within a short period of time.
