Firearms Hunter Safety Skills & Exam Day
**THIS COURSE IS OPEN TO MAINE RESIDENTS ONLY**
Kittery Trading Post is pleased to offer our Maine Hunter Safety (Firearms) Course. The course is free and open to Maine residents. By Maine state law, individuals must complete a hunter education course prior to buying a basic hunting (firearms) license, or be able to show a previously issued license of the same type. If you would like to refresh your knowledge of safe and responsible hunting, then taking a hunter education course is a great idea.

The Online Course requires that students complete the knowledge portion of the course online followed by attendance at a skills and exam day which is about 7 hours. Students complete quizzes and an exam and are provided with a voucher to attend the Skills & Exam Day upon completion of the online exam. Students must complete the online course and provide a voucher number to register for the Skills & Exam Day. Students must also bring the voucher to the first class.
