Nothing is free, so my question is: Who is funding this? State?

It has public and private funding sources, as well as volunteer instructors.

Hipper - state support? And how much?

Last I knew this was funded by hunter groups such as Quail and Ducks Unlimited and the Fraternal Organization of Police. If it has any state funding it is very little.

Hunters and fisherman are 99% in total numbers really fine people. I doubt very much if any tax funding is used.

Great course and highly recommended. Called Hunter Safety, but really a fine course on gun safety.

Good to get your certificate here and at an early age. To hunt in other states one must have HS certification to get a license. Don't be one of those unlucky SO@ who have to take a quicky and expensive course in Colorado for instance.
