I don't have an issue with it. Not everyone has an uncle, brother, dad or friend to take them. Does it help? Not sure, but it can't hurt. A lot of unsafe idiots out there and some have taken the class and are still unsafe idiots.

Couldn't agree more with the last part. The course isn't gonna make anyone safer or less an idiot.

Of course it can hurt, when it's required by law and used as a personal weapon against hunters. It should be voluntary. Heck I'd even make it available to insurance companies to design and administer for liability insurance discounts.

Carrots always work better than sticks.

Im betting most of the "unsafe" people out there know what the correct answer is to take and pass the test... no class or test will make them responsible.

Simple fix make us like Colorado and some of the other western states where you can't get a licenses until you provide it.

One of my sons and his best friend got to go to a GW camp years ago for a week. Besides earning their hunter safety they were taught game laws, fishing laws, taught how to build safe campfires, and all around hunting and fishing safety. Six are seven days of fun and festivities he still talks about twenty years later.

That would be much better than using it as a stick. But I still don't see the overall value.

I cary mine too, but I think its bs to get a ticket for not having it when your not hunting.

I have a buddy that got a ticket for incorrectly filling out the log on the back of his license on a fishing trip after season was over. Sometimes its a little much.

As a Hunter Education instructor, allowing adults to complete the process by taking the online course has been a positive. I now have fewer people in my classes who feel they don't need to be there because they already know everything. Parents who take the class with their kids, especially when they don't need it, are never a problem and can add much to the discussions.

For that matter, why give drivers education and issue a drivers license? You can't change an idiot and irresponsible drivers so whats the point of giving them a drivers education? Why train a 12 year old child to handle a rifle properly or cross a fence properly while hunting? Why teach a 12 year old to identify what he is about to shoot at before pulling the trigger vs. why teach a 15 year old to stop and look both ways before pulling out into an intersection? all seem like pretty common sense things. But not everyone grows up with parents to teach them how to drive or how to hunt.
