Bowhunting courses offered in Palm Beach and Miami-Dade County

| 6/11/2019

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is offering free bowhunting courses in Palm Beach and Miami-Dade County.  Bowhunting courses are designed to help students become safe, responsible and knowledgeable hunters and learn about conservation. 

All classroom materials are provided free of charge. Students should bring a pen or pencil, paper and all bowhunting equipment they have. An adult must accompany children younger than 16 at all times. 

Anyone born on or after June 1, 1975, must pass an approved hunter safety course and have a hunting license to hunt alone (unsupervised). The FWC course satisfies bowhunter safety training requirements for all other states and Canadian provinces.

Traditional Bowhunting Course 

Palm Beach County

The specific location for this class will be given to those who register in advance. Those interested in attending a course can register online and obtain information about future hunter safety classes at MyFWC.com/HunterSafety or by calling the FWC’s regional office in West Palm Beach at 561-625-5122.
