ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The state is making it easier to get your hunting license. If you don't want to sit through hunting safety courses, you can pick up a CD at a DNR office or take online courses that range in price from about $10 to $25.  

"The online course and the CD ROM course requires you to print a certificate off, an affidavit, afterwards saying that you've completed the course, and then you bring that certificate to one of our hunter safety courses, and then you take a written exam," said Sgt. Ellis Wynn, Department of Natural resources.
