All states and provinces that have mandatory hunter education requirements will accept Maryland Hunter Education certifications. Likewise, Maryland will accept hunter education certifications that are issued by other states and provinces that meet official IHEA-USA requirements.
Since states have begun requiring hunter education, over the last 30 years hunting incidents have drastically decreased, while the number of hunters has increased. Today, hunting is one of the safest outdoor activities you can enjoy.
Sanner's offers many Hunter's Education opportunities which can be found on the calendar below. Two classes, the Hunter Education Field Day in conjunction with the internet class or the Traditional Hunter Education Class & Field Day, are required to obtain a Certificate of Competency in Firearms and Hunter Safety. Additionally, the specialty classes, Bow Hunter and Muzzle Loader, are also offered but are not required for the Certificate.
The classroom portion required to obtain your Certificate of Competency in Firearms and Hunter Safety may be completed online and then followed up with a required Field Day class. Information on the internet class can be found here: MD Hunter's Ed Course. The Field Day class is offered at SLSC. Additionally, a traditional classroom Hunter's Education Class & Field Day is still offered at SLSC.
For questions, please contact SLSC Lead Instructor for Hunter Education, Matt Campbell, firstname.lastname@example.org .
