    My boyfriend and I have been discussing the possibility of me finally going out with him on my first hunt next deer season. I have never taken a hunter saftey course and know that I need one to get my license. I am a little uncomfortable about sitting in a class with a bunch of 10 to 12 year olds, considering I'm almost 28 years old. Does anywhere do a hunter saftey course aimed more at women or adults vs youth hunters?

    My wife took the class with my son, she loved it and everyone was very welcoming. If you don't want to take it alone have your boyfriend join you, as long as he is not taking a seat away from someone else it should not be a problem.

    No need to worry about the kids in class. We've had 40 year old and up men who need the card to hunt outstate attend.
    I was probably 35 or so when I took mine.
    Kids will probably see you as a Goddess because you're an "old" person to them and full of wisdom. Relax and enjoy the class.
