North Carolina reaches new hunters with online hunter safety course

Hunting seasons are just around the corner, and hunter-ed.com has launched a new North Carolina hunter education course. Successfully completing a hunter education course is a requirement for purchasing a North Carolina hunting license. Students take the fast-paced hunter safety course online when it fits their schedule, then complete their hunter education certification by attending a field day led by North Carolina hunter safety instructors. 

DALLAS — Geared toward young people, hunter-ed.com's hunting safety course is narrated, so students can listen, read or both. Quiz questions are read out loud and include pictures to help students recall what they've learned. Hundreds of detailed illustrations and animations give students a clear idea of what to expect once they're in the field. Although it's kid-friendly, the hunting and firearm safety content is comprehensive. (www.hunter-ed.com/NorthCarolina)

In addition to the online hunter education option, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission selected hunter-ed.com to provide hunter safety courses via CD-ROM and traditional classroom student manuals. Hunter-ed.com is now the exclusive provider of the North Carolina hunter education course for all three delivery methods—classroom, CD-ROM and the online hunter safety course.

 "Our agency has depended on hunter-ed.com for a number of years to provide the hunter education materials and resources our students need. Their hunter education content is continuously updated to reflect the latest safety guidelines and hunting regulations," said Capt. Chris Huebner, hunter education coordinator with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission. "We can count on hunter-ed to develop products that reach more new hunters—Spanish manuals, interactive animations, and these new online and CD-ROM options."

Since 2002, more than one million students have taken a hunter-ed.com hunter safety course. 

"We are gratified that so many state agencies and students have selected hunter-ed.com to be their hunter education partner," said Kurt Kalkomey, president of Kalkomey Enterprises, Inc. "Hunter-ed.com continually innovates so that we can introduce more folks to the rich heritage of hunting. Our motto is 'Get safe, get certified' so you can maximize your enjoyment of the outdoors. These days, very few people can devote an entire weekend or multiple weeknights to take a classroom hunting course. The hunter-ed.com online course saves time and money, and opens up hunting opportunities for young people."

Hunter-ed.com's North Carolina hunter safety course material is free to the public. Students pay $19.50 to print out a field day voucher that admits them to a field day.

Hunter-ed.com is a division of Kalkomey Enterprises, Inc., which publishes more than 190 hunter education products selected by 48 states. For more information about official hunter safety courses and state requirements for hunter education, please visit www.hunter-ed.com.
