State wildlife officials hosting free hunter safety course in Miami


MIAMI — State wildlife officials are hosting a free hunter safety course in Miami.

The course held by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission runs Friday through Sunday at Castellow Hammock Park.

The commission said in a news release that students must attend all three days of the course. Attendees will learn about hunting laws, safe gun handling and hunter ethics, among other topics. Then they'll take a final test. The course also includes live-firing instruction on a shooting range.
