  When I first read the title


When I first read the title to this news article I wondered how a person could go through the hunter certification course completely over the internet.  Then obviously after reading the article completely see that there is actually a mandatory in-class time that allows for further instruction and most likely a shooting certification as well.  I don't see reasoning why this is only being offered in one county of Florida... but this is a very good program for those that cannot forfeit more than the one long day for in classroom work, study, and certification.  Good for Florida and open it to more counties if you can!
