NEWS RELEASE Feb. 8, 2012 For immediate release Upcoming Spring Turkey Seasons And Hunter-Ed.Com Offer A Perfect Combination For Mentoring New Hunters Spring wild turkey seasons will be opening soon in many states, offering experienced hunters a great chance to introduce family and friends to hunting. Those who must pass a hunter safety course before they can purchase a hunting license for turkey season can get started on their training at www.hunter-ed.com. "Milder spring temperatures make it an ideal time to mentor new hunters on the finer points of calling in a big gobbler," said Kurt Kalkomey, president of Kalkomey Enterprises, Inc. "Hunter-ed.com will give students a head start on learning how to safely handle firearms and hunt defensively." Online hunter safety education courses are available in participating states so students should visit hunter-ed.com to take a course specific to their state. The lessons at hunter-ed.com are approved by the state agency responsible for hunter education and feature the same material that's taught in the classroom. Features such as detailed illustrations and interactive animations at hunter-ed.com make it easy for students to learn how to be safe and responsible hunters. Plus, an optional narration feature allows students to listen, read or both. Students can study for free at hunter-ed.com. Those who must receive their hunter education certification to obtain a hunting license pay a one-time fee, which is due only if they pass the test. Students can take the test as many times as they need to pass it. In many states, students must pass an online course and a field day to complete all hunter education requirements. Field days are designed to be a hands-on, learning experience, and students are encouraged to review their state requirements about field days before beginning the online course. To take the online portion of the course, visit www.hunter-ed.com.
