Well it seems as a friend of mine is wanting to get into hunting also. He has not lived here but for a couple of years, well he lived in TN just not from this area he was from Memphis.

The thing is he never took hunters Ed and missed out on this years pre seasons classes so he bought himself what Tennessee calls an apprentice license. Well, this is supposed to exempt him from the hunters Ed requirement for one year. The catch is that the way the law reads is that a person with that license must be occompanied by someone over 21 who has completed hunters Ed.

With him being 30 years old he was told he could go on out on his own but from what the way I read it he can't. Am I correct on this?

I offered to go with him but our schedules are not matching up. I just don't want to see him get in trouble for it.

There are online courses but at the end you have to attend a "field day" and there won't be anymore till after the season is over.

I did mine online and I had to make sure I had a field day lined up before doing it otherwise I would have been screwed. But then again I did my stuff before the season.

That is the way it is. He has to be accompanied by someone who has taken the hunters ed program or someone born prior to 1969 that is not required to have it.

That's pretty much the way the "rules" are here in TX. We have online stuff we can take to cut the "field day" down to a single day. My oldest son had to take a 2 day class before they came out with all of this online stuff.

You gotta have someone over 21 and with a completed hunters ed certificate with you or face the consequences if caught by the local game warden.

Well me and my son are going this weekend before the season closes for two weeks. I offered to take him with us but he is set on going to his spot by himself so oh well. If he gets caught it's his rear end. Some people just won't listen to reason.

unforgiven... I'd just let him go then. If he's going to be stubborn about it. like you said it's his rear end getting in trouble, not yours....
