Student-friendly extras added to Hunter-ed.com's online Idaho hunter safety course

Hunter-ed.com is pleased to announce three major enhancements to its online Idaho hunter education course. All hunting safety course content is now professionally narrated, so students can select the learning style that's best for them: listen, read or both. Hunter exam questions are now read aloud and include pictures to help students recall what they've learned—a hunter-ed.com exclusive. Hundreds of firearm and hunter safety illustrations have been updated with realistic details to give students a clear idea of what to expect once they're in the field. 

DALLAS — Successfully completing a hunter education course is mandatory for most hunting license buyers born on or after Jan. 1, 1975. With hunter-ed.com, people learn the official hunter education material that is taught in Idaho classroom courses. Students take the fast-paced Idaho hunter safety course online when it fits their schedule, then complete their hunter education certification by attending a field day led by Idaho hunter safety instructors. Students completing the hunter education course may then purchase an Idaho hunting license. (www.hunter-ed.com/Idaho)

Joshua Burnett, a student who took the hunter-ed.com course, said it was a positive experience.
 
"Your site has been great. I am a Marine and have had countless hours behind all sorts of weapons, but the information I have received from your course has been irreplaceable. I thought it was going to be a drag and boring, but I have actually enjoyed the course very much."

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

Improvements to hunter-ed.com's hunter education course content and presentation are the result of extensive and frequent reviews by hunting and firearms safety authorities. Although its courses have received many positive reviews through the years, hunter-ed.com continues to add extras and special features designed to appeal to today's hunters.

"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 Idaho hunter safety course material is free to the public. Students pay $24.50 to print out a hunter education internet course 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.
