Hunter Safety Course

Event Type: Library-sponsored Adult Event
Date: 10/18/2019, 10/27/2019
Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
 Blue Hill Public Library will again be hosting the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife's Firearms Safety Course for hunters. There are two options for participants to obtain a certificate, either: 1) attend both scheduled sessions at the library, Friday October 18th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM and Sunday October 27th from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and complete home-study work between the two meetings or 2) complete an online course instead of attending the October 18th meeting, and attend in-person for the full-day session held on October 27th. On the 27th students must participate in activities, demonstrate to the instructor that they can safely handle a firearm, bring in a survival kit, and pass a final exam.

Completing all the requirements takes at least 12 hours, although many will average more. The course covers the basics of safe firearms handling, responsible hunting practices and Maine’s hunting regulations. Proof of having taken this course must be shown with all first-time license applications. Participants must be at least 10 years of age and all minors will be required to have a signed parental consent form, available at the first session. The course is free.

Registration is required and can be done through the library's events calendar at, or by calling the library at 374-5515. For more information about the course, send an email to or visit to learn more and to complete the online portion of the course.
