Hunter Safety Program

                                                                          Police Patch              Wildlife Patch
In cooperation with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, the Pineville Police Department will be hosting another "Hunter Safety Programs" in May and September:

Anyone can participate in the basic student course, but only those persons 10 years of age or older are eligible for certification. This course requires classroom attendance, passing a written test with a score of 75 percent or better, and completing a live-fire exercise. Upon successful completion of the course, students receive a Louisiana Hunter Education Certification Card that is recognized by all other states.

The Hunter Education courses are FREE. There are also refreshments served Thursday and Friday and a meal on Saturday, plus exciting door-prizes!

Act 149 of the 1984 Louisiana Legislature enacted a mandatory education requirement for anyone born on or after September 1, 1969. All young hunters must successfully complete the course prior to purchasing a hunting license.

Older hunters who plan to hunt out of state should check the state regulation where they plan to hunt. All 50 states now require some form of mandatory hunter education certification prior to issuing a license.
Following are the next scheduled classes:
