NOTE: The Hunter Education Manual is a mandatory requirement by order of the MNR.        It is the students responsibility to insure that they have a hard copy manual for “in-class” use. Manuals may be shared between two people living at the same address.

A hard copy of the Hunter Education Manual may be ordered on line, directly from the Ontario Federation of Anglers & Hunters, just click the Hunter textbook above or order by phone at 1-705- 748-5785.   Students who show up to class without a hard copy manual are prohibited from attending the course and unfortunately no course refund is available as a result.
