    Default Education for huntsmen?

    If you want to hunt in Germany you have to pass an education over several months and a test in writing, an oral test and shoot test.

    Is there something similar in the USA? What do you have to do before beeing allowed to go hunting?

    Curiously waiting,

    we have a hunter safety course paid for in part by the Pitman- Robertson Act and by private contributions. It last a couple weeks. Has class room and shooting range. I took the first time when I was 9 years old. I took it again exactly 1 year ago because I had lost my hunter safety card. I needed it to get a license in another state (so I can hunt both sides of the lake here). MAN! The course has changed in the 34 years between the two times I took it!!! Some of the videos they show the kids are very shocking. You know the "Don't shoot your friends" videos. It is mostly kids with a smattering of adults. Mostly parents taking it with their offspring. I studied hard and sat in the front row to make sure I scored a perfect 100 on the test because I
    a - take the instructor hunting
    b - didn't want to get shown up by a very smart little girl, maybe 9 years old, that say at the end of the table. Fricken kid was the only other one in the class to also get a perfect 100 in the class room but I kicked her butt once we went to the rifle range it's all about the little victories for me

    No, anyone can take them. They won't check your passport at the door.

    Maybe verbal test translates better.
