The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) organizes and conducts annually advanced hunter education clinics that are specifically designed to further the education of hunters of all stripes in California. The year 2018 is no exception.

This series of educational classes has steadily gained in popularity. At the same time, new topics were added every year. The most recent additions to the scope of advanced hunter education clinics are advanced bow hunting, wilderness first aid and wilderness navigation, airgun hunting, sausage making (believe it or not) and backpack hunting.

The advanced hunting clinics are held in various parts of California, from north to south, to allow hunters with a specific interest to attend a class nearby. The most popular classes are, of course, big game hunting, especially wild pig hunting, deer hunting, land navigation, and specialty clinics like hunting with bow and arrow or airgun hunting.

In addition, waterfowl hunting clinics and upland game hunting classes are among the true and trusted staples.

CDFW strives to cover topics such as “ type of firearm, ammunition, the importance of sighting in the firearm, gauging distance, scouting, tracking, field dressing, shoot-don’t shoot scenarios, hunter ethics, landowner-hunter relationships, conservation, and safety. The goal of this series of hunting clinics is to develop ethical, conservation-minded, successful hunters through education.

These clinics are so popular that many of the more popular classes are sold out long before their official registration period closes. For example, turkey hunting, big game hunting basics, and sausage making are already full, believe it or not.

Space is limited. It is therefore imperative to register early for any class you are considering. You can always cancel, should it become necessary, as long as you do it as soon as you know that you will not be able to make it.

Junior hunters under 17 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to participate in a clinic.
