Students who need to complete a hunter safety course to get their hunting license can now take the first step of that training on their smartphone, tablet or laptop at www.hunter-ed.com.

“Students expect to tackle a variety of tasks on their smartphones and tablets so it makes sense for hunter-ed.com to be mobile ready,” said Edward Cossette, user experience manager for Kalkomey, parent company of hunter-ed.com. “The pages at hunter-ed.com automatically resize according to the device used, from a smartphone to Internet TV. There’s no app to download and each page is easy to view and read.”

Another benefit of hunter-ed.com being available on any device is students can access the course on the Web even if the only way they have to connect to the Internet is via their smartphone. The training at hunter-ed.com is state-approved and covers the same material that’s taught in the classroom. The new mobile-ready site features realistic illustrations and interactive animations. An optional narration feature is available in many states, allowing students to hear the course in English and Spanish.

Hunter-ed.com also has introduced a series of hunter safety videos. The new videos cover topics such as tree stand hunting safety, firearms safety, hunting from a ground blind, effectiveness of blaze orange and more.

Studying at hunter-ed.com is free. Students who must be certified before buying a hunting license pay a one-time fee, which is due only if they pass the test. Online hunter safety courses are available in participating states, so visit hunter-ed.com for a state-specific course.

Several states require students to pass an online course and a field day to complete all hunter education requirements. Students can register for a field day or classroom course at www.register-ed.com in participating states. At register-ed.com, students can use their smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop to sign up for field days and courses.
