Soon everyone will be able to complete the Hunter Education Class online. The course will take between 6-8 hours. My understanding is the course itself is free but to complete it you must pass a test at the end. Upon taking the test a 15.00$ fee is assessed.(Yes if you fail you must again pay the 15.00$ fee) This course should be available sometime after the first of the year and can be accessed via links on the DNR website.
