SOCIAL CIRCLE — Hunter education graduates can receive a free three-month pass to any of the 18 Department of Natural Resources shooting ranges in Georgia.
Typically, a wildlife management area license ($19) or other qualifying license would be required for shooters age 16 and older.

At the conclusion of class, each student receives a hunter education certification card. The graduation date, listed on the card, is the beginning of their three-month shooting range pass. They need to show the card at the range. Students will receive information about the use of the pass and where to find participating ranges during their classroom time.
