    I was born in Texas and go back each Dove season. My son is there and I need to know to get a hunting license for him. I need to know what the cut off birthday is that you need a hunter safety course for. And how much the course cost is in Texas. Any help would be great. Thanks

    If you wish to hunt in Texas and you are:
    Age 17 & over and born on or after September 2, 1971, you must successfully complete a hunter education course.
    Age 12 through 16, you must successfully complete a hunter education course or be accompanied* by a person 17 years of age or older licensed to hunt in Texas.
    Under 12 years, you must be accompanied* by a person 17 years of age or older licensed to hunt in Texas.
    note: minimum age for certification is 12 years of age.

    * "Accompanied" means being within normal voice control of the licensed adult hunter.
    Hunters certified in other states or provinces must carry proof of certification while hunting.

    Thanks I was sure he would need to take the course.
    Anyone have any idea how much the course cost and I will pay to have him take it. We will be hunting and he can take the course around Wichita Falls, TX.

    Thanks:)

    The course is usually free of charge.

    Just have him call a sporting goods store, such as Oshman's. They will be able to point him to a course.

    i paid $5 or $7 i think. you'd better hurry! it's way late in the year for the course and they fill up fast if not already full.

    i'm in dfw and there weren't that many available within a reasonable drive from where i live. i would suspect wichita falls is even tighter.

    my dad and i are going opening day, our 11th year in a row. good coffe, conversation and giving each other a hard time. it just doesn't get any better than that.;)
