Hunter's Ed Class for Veterans

I was wondering if I still have to take the Hunter's Ed class if I am a military veteran? I ask because I am originally from Illinois and was a hunter and was exempt from any hunters' safety or education classes.


Military veterans are required to have Hunter Education to buy a hunting license if they were born on or after January 1, 1975 and they have not held a hunting license from Idaho or another state. The Hunter Education course includes the following subject areas.
Firearm handling and safety
Hunting laws and ethics
Responsibilities toward landowners
Hunting skills such as game care, survival skills and first aid
Responsibilities toward landowners
Wildlife Identification, management and conservation
Students are evaluated on their class participation, examination score, field exercise participation and demonstration of safety during the entire course especially on the field exercise.
