Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff deputies volunteered to attend and were sent to West Monroe by Sheriff Woods to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Hunter Safety Instructor Course. The deputies who successfully completed the course are now certified instructors and are providing parish residents with an opportunity to obtain hunter safety certification.
The Louisiana Legislature enacted a mandatory education requirement for anyone born on or after September 1, 1969. All hunters born on or after this date must successfully complete the course in order to hunt in the State of Louisiana. Hunter Education provides a foundation for safe and responsible hunting.
Anyone can participate in the basic student course, but only those persons 10 years of age or older are eligible for certification. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a Louisiana Hunter Education Certification Card that is recognized by all states and provinces that require hunter education. There is no charge to attend a standard or field day hunter education course. There is a $15.00 fee to use the on-line version of the home study course.
There are two ways to take a hunter education course:
CLASSROOM COURSE - This method requires a student to attend 10 hours of instructions provided by a certified hunter education instructor.
HOME STUDY - This method allows a student to take a hunter education course by studying the course material either on the internet or by CD-ROM at the students convenience. To complete the process students are required to attend a FIELD DAY taught by a certified instructor.
Ivy Woods, Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff would like to announce the upcoming Hunter Safety Courses.
