It was (is) an excellent course, beats the one out here (NS) hands-down. Heavy emphasis on firearm safety in the field, survival and game identification. But if they allow hunters to take cheaper courses (even if they are better) how are they ever going to pay off that $1B disaster of a gun registry [sic]

It is a great course and getting both at the same time is a major plus. I mean the license and being able to register your guns. I took it last spring and taking both at the same time was really handy.
I've spent countless hours either on my hands and knees or bent over, messing up my back, looking for blood. One such instance I remember most was a hog hunt a few years ago in Mississippi. I had never shot a hog so when I poked a hole in this guy; I was determined to find him. Wearing snake leggings, I crawled on my hands and knees through the briars and the brambles and bushes where a rabbit wouldn't go. I found a spot of blood here and there but never the pig. And lucky for me, I didn't find...
