That is illegal and immoral as well!

Have her take the course....not only is it the only legal way it's for everyone's safety!

Here's a link to the available courses:

sorry i did not realize that. I remember back when i took mine along time ago it was a youth hunter saftey traing class i belived it said so on the orange card they gave at the end. So i always figured thats all it was. Learn something everyday. Thanks also

The questoin is: Is the wife going to be carrying a gun and shooting at game or is she just tagging along? Don't need a license just to tag along.

years ago you could get away without taking the course but now that its all computerized it cant be done. my father hunted for twenty years and never took the course until I did.

If I'm not mistaken (and someone will correct me if I'm wrong) it wasn't mandatory to take the course until the early 80's.
