The mandatory class is 8 hours long between the on line portion of the class and classroom instruction. Instructors are certified as well as certified hunters. All students have to register on-line at the PA Game Commission website and complete a portion of the class on line. Students are taught
to be responsible and ethical hunters, to know your firearm equipment including bows, how to be safe while hunting and how to keep others safe while you are hunting, hunting techniques and skills. when it is legal to hunt certain types of animals and much more. The class had approximately 40
