Hey Guys:) This is my last Florida Summer Vacation Blog for this trip. 😦 So my weekend went well! I attended the Florida Hunter Safety Course this weekend. I had to go to so I could hunt with my Dad and Grandma – and be able to get my hunting license when I turn 16. It was a lot of fun.. I thought that it was gonna be really BORING!
We started off with wildlife ID, what wildlife was protected and unprotected in Florida. That part of the class only lasted about 2 hours. The next day we had to learn about, firearms, ammunition, laws, what to shoot, when to shoot, where to shoot a deer, and A LOT more. The final day we had more laws to learn but after that it was time to test what we had learned, we all had to take a 50 question test. I was the FIRST one to finish!! I got 92 out of 100. After the test, we had to do a safety walk.
They had rubber snakes and deer and a we learned to crawl over a fence holding a firearm. We had to tell the instructor if we would shoot or not shoot in different situations. I said no because there were two deer one in front of each other. There was a doe and buck, if you were to shoot it is would be illegal and non-ethical. You would have legal deer and one illegal deer.
After the walk we went to the range. I shoot a bolt-Action 22. I did well for the target!!!!!! After the range, we all got our hunters safety card – everyone passed the class 😦 I didn’t want to leave…I had A LOT of fun! Grandma said I should thank the Hernando County Sportsman Club for hosting the Hunter Safety Class and all the great instructors. I can’t wait to start watching for the next youth hunts coming up! Here is where you go to sign up for the Youth Hunting Program of Florida http://myfwc.com/yhpf .
