Changes To Hunter Education Course At This Year’s Outdoor Blast

Brad Gill | June 26, 2014

GON will once again be offering a hunter-education course at its Outdoor Blast, but the course will be different from courses taught in previous years.

• Known as a “Refresher Course,” this year’s hunter-education course at the Outdoor Blast is ONLY for those individuals who have first completed either an online hunter-education course or the CD version of the hunter-education course. This MUST be done prior to showing up for the hunter-education course at the Outdoor Blast.

There are four online hunter-education options, and they can be viewed at Click on “Hunter Education Course.” Online hunter-education courses range in price from $9.95-$24.50.

The CD version of the hunter-education course is free and can be obtained through your local Game Management office. Call (770) 918-6400 if you need your local number.

When completing either the online or CD version, there will be an affidavit to print out and sign. Bring the signed affidavit and a pencil or pen to the hunter-education course at the Outdoor Blast.

• In addition to taking the online or CD course, this year’s hunter-education participants MUST SIGN-UP ONLINE for the hunter-education refresher class at this year’s Outdoor Blast.

To sign up for the Outdoor Blast hunter-education class, go to Click on “Hunter Education,” and search for classes in Gwinnett County. Space is limited, so sign up quickly before all the spots are gone.

Hunter Ed At Blast

The hunter-education course at this year’s Outdoor Blast will be on Saturday, July 26 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.

After paying (for those 13 and older), go down the escalator. The classroom is adjacent to the escalator, but there will be someone wearing a hunter-education shirt directing you on where to go.

Do I Pay To Get In?

Children 12 years of age and younger are free to get into the Outdoor Blast. The ticket price for those 13 and older is $8.

Hunter-education courses are free, but if you decide to take the course at the Outdoor Blast, you will have to pay admission to get into the Blast and take the course. If you care nothing about seeing the Outdoor Blast and don’t want to pay, there are lots of other hunter-education classes available through
