Texas Hunter Education covers the skills, regulations and responsibilities of hunting, wildlife conservation, and the outdoors.  Every year, over 30,000 youth and adults in Texas become certified in hunter education – a certification that lasts a lifetime and is recognized by all states and provinces requiring hunters education.  Join the ranks of today’s hunter education graduates who are ensuring the future of our hunting heritage!
