Hunter's Ed on CD-ROM
by Steve McCadams

    Hunter Education is mandatory in Tennessee for anyone born on or after January 1, 1969; however, some hunters find it difficult to make time for the course because of work or school schedules.
   That is why the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is experimenting with a CD ROM home-education course that allows students to study when time allows, provided they complete the CD prior to attending a field day to test their
   "The CD ROM course is not a replacement for the traditional hunter education course we teach in a classroom setting," explained Don Crawford, hunter education coordinator for TWRA's Region III office on the Cumberland Plateau.
   "What we are attempting is do is just fill a niche for those people who find it hard to attend the traditional class which lasts some 4-6 nights. It is for those who work the 2nd and 3rd shifts, one-parent families, and students with studies or extracurricular activities such as baseball, band, football, etc.," stated Crawford.
   Like the traditional class, the CD ROM course is also free.  This class is not any easier.  If anything, it is a little more difficult.  One must answer a series of quiz questions throughout each section and then successfully pass a 50 questions test at the completion of the CD ROM.  Then the student must attend a field day for more testing which will be given orally by instructors, successfully pass a 100 questions test, and complete a live firing exercise.
   Information about a CD ROM class can be obtained on TWRA's website at
