How to get a hunting license?

What is better, to take most of the Hunter Safety Course on-line, or to take it mostly in the classroom? I want to get my rifle hunting license for this fall's deer season in Connecticut.

There's no doubt taking it in a classroom should be more educational and possibly enjoyable. I think it would come down to the instructor. A good one may have plenty of experiences he or she could share that may soak in better compared to an online course. Either way, the courses save a lot of lives. From the proper amount of orange to when you should and should not take a particular shot, the information is good. Soak it in and don't forget it. That's great you're planning to do some deer hunting this fall. Once you fill your freezer you should check out some of the recipes people have posted on here. I've seen some good ones. I'm looking forward to trying this one beta.huntdrop.com/drop/venison-chili

I agree with Eric. Online- classes of any kind are a shortcut and you miss a lot of the experience shared by the instructor and other participants.

The online course is the way to go.

I am 16 and went through a classroom and I have to say that it is fun and the instructors where hunters so they told me about some of their experiences and brought in some of their weapo s to show the difference what you can hunt with and it is really easy

I took my course in classroom in high school. I knew the teacher, I knew most of the material from being on the rifle team, and that made all the difference. They do offer courses online and on CDs, so, whichever suits your circumstance best, go or it.

I'm a Hunter Education Instructor in Washington, so I may be a little biased, and I would say that taking it in a classroom setting provides for a much richer experience. While a portion of being a safe hunter comes from knowledge, a much larger portion comes from practice, and hands-on experience. Being new to the world of hunting, there are going to be terms and concepts that will be unfamiliar, and may be hard to understand. It's much easier to watch the demonstrations in a classroom, and ask any questions you like if you're having difficulty understanding.

I think it depends on whether you have any experience or not. Where I am in Canada, we used to be able to hunt with someone before we were of age, so I had hunting experience and a knowledge of rifles, so I challenged the course. Not sure if that is an option, or if you have any experience. If no experience, I would definitely say to take the classroom course.

I think it may be very convenient. You can easily compare prices in different countries and find your dream hunting. Your opinion is highly needed!
