Does anyone know what the minimum hunting age is in Hawaii? i've heard everything from 10 years to 15 years old. my son is 11 and if that is old enough i would like to get the ball rolling.

My son is 10 now and we both took the course and passed today!  I also took the handgun safety course first but I figure I might as well take the Hunters Ed course too!  The min age for kids is 10yrs old for Hunters Ed!

I got lucky and was able to get in as a stand-by for the always-fully-booked classes offered by DLNR this week.

I can't say enough good things about DLNR's Hunter's Education program and highly recommend it.  I went in expecting to just get a hunters license and came away with a deep appreciation for animal habitat and wildlife conservation work in Hawaii by hunters and folks in the DLNR.

I encourage those here who are into firearms to check out the Hunters Ed program.

To get a standby seat, go at 2:00 or 2:30 pm of the first day of a booked class and wait till 4:30pm to get on the standby list. If enough people don't show up, you will be able to get in as long as here are seats available in the classroom.

If you can go earlier and can't wait until December, just go there early on the first class being held and stand in line for stand-by.  If you get into the class on stand-by make sure to cancel your December registration for others to attend. :shaka:

Someone told me this no longer counts for handgun permit to acquire.  Is this true?

Was still good on 11/27.  I was registering a lower while someone else was applying for a permit for a pistol with their hunter's ed card.

Congrats on getting your hunter's badge, stangzilla.

For gun guys that took a handgun safety class:  the Hunter's Education classes is really a different animal (pun intended).  It covers a whole slew of topics not covered in the handgun safety class and is highly recommended!

I attended the Nimitz class lastnight and there were 25 registered and 25 standby's waiting in line.  There were 50 seats so everyone was able to attend.  There were a lot of small children taking the class and there were about 20% women in the class.  Instructors were good and entertaining.
