Hunter Education Program
The Apple Valley Gun Club hosts the California Department of Fish and Game Hunter Education Program. Classes are scheduled monthly, normally on the third Saturday of each month. This course is an Internet supported, four hour class. In order to register you must complete the course prework at: http://homestudy.ihea.com/ The Internet pre-course is free. The instructors will also meet with you prior to the class to give you a Today's Hunter in California workbook and some other study materials. Once you have completed the pre-work course, download your test results, complete your workbook, and attend our next four hour test session. The test session is $5 for club members and $10 for non-members. Children under 18 are free. Also, contact the instructors for upcoming Department of Fish and Game Advanced Clinics.
