FWC Offers Hunter Safety Classes In Escambia, Santa Rosa

March 1, 2017

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering free hunter safety courses in Escambia County this month.

Students who have taken the online course and wish to complete the classroom portion must bring the online-completion report with them. Traditional course students must complete the entire course in person.

All firearms, ammunition and materials are provided free of charge. Students should bring a pen or pencil and paper. An adult must accompany children younger than 16 at all times.
