Hunting in Hawaii: Are Safety Courses Required to Hunt in Hawaii? How Do I Pass Classes?

By    |   Monday, 25 May 2015 07:31 PM

The state of Hawaii requires hunters to pass a hunter education course before applying for a hunting license. You only need to take the course once; your certification never expires, and it can be used to obtain a hunting license at any time.

The following tips from the state’s Department of Land and Natural Resources will increase your chances of passing the course and avoiding any delay in obtaining your Hawaii hunting license:

  1. Have your information ready before calling to register. When signing up for a course, you must provide your full name, birthday, phone number, mailing address, and gender.
  2. Register early. Classes sometimes fill up fast, so to ensure that you get a spot, sign up as soon as you determine which session you’d like to attend. You can register as early as two months prior to the first business day of the month in which the class is held. If you don’t make it into your preferred session, you can come at least half an hour early in the event the instructor allows students in on a standby basis. This option is first come, first served. If you have your heart set on attending a specific course session, get there as early as possible on the first night.

  4. Attendance is mandatory. Hawaii’s hunter education courses last three nights and participants must attend all three sessions to pass the course and qualify to take the exam. If you miss 15 minutes or more of any part of the course, such as a video presentation, you must make up the entire portion before you can take the certification exam. You’ll receive an Incomplete Letter informing you what you missed; after that, you have six months to make up that segment of the course. After six months you must take the entire course again.
  5. Some hunters are exempt. You don’t have to take Hawaii’s hunter education class if you’ve already taken one recognized by the International Hunter Education Association and can show proof of completion. If you meet this requirement, you must obtain a letter of exemption before you can apply for a state hunting license.
