HUNTER ED BASIC COURSE The class will be held on Saturday, from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM at the Dallas Market Hall, during the Dallas Arms Collector Association (DACA) gun show. The street address for the location is: 2200 North Stemmons Freeway, Dallas, TX 75207 The class will start at 9:00 AM. Please plan to arrive at the show around 8:45. On registration, we will send more details on exactly where you will need to go. We will have a team member meet students and escort them to the classroom. DACA covers all costs for the class, including the state registration fees (i.e., there is no charge for entry to the show, and no charge to you for this class). If the student is a minor (under 17 years old), an authorized adult must stay long enough to sign the TPWD registration form so that student can participate in the class. Please note that while a student under 9 years old may take the Hunter Education Course, the minimum age of certification is 9 years. The class begins at 9:00 AM and is 6 hours of classroom instruction including practical exercises in safe firearm handling and obstacle crossing. There is a written exam (multiple choice questions) at the end of the class, and the student must score at least 75% to pass. We should conclude the class around 4:00 PM. We will take a break for lunch around noon, so please either bring something for lunch, or you can shop at the food court in the gun show. Students are responsible for their own lunch and transportation needs. Please do not bring firearms or ammunition to class; all class materials are supplied by the instructor. For safety purposes, NO LIVE AMMUNITION IN THE CLASSROOM! If you have any questions or concerns, please fell free to contact us. Thank you for continuing a rich tradition of hunting and conservation. We look forward to meeting you in class. Sincerely, Texas Training Crew (Training for Dallas Arms Collectors Association - DACA) 214-444-8821
