State says Oxendine needs hunting safety course

Associated Press - January 25, 2010 3:14 PM ET

ATLANTA (AP) - State officials say state Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine has not completed the legally required Georgia Hunter Education Course and instructed him to do so after his 13-year-old stepson sprayed a bystander with shotgun pellets during a recent hunting trip.

In a report issued on Monday, state Department of Natural Resources officials said they had recommended that Oxendine and the other hunters complete the course.

On Jan. 17, Oxendine's stepson shot a 59-year-old bystander with about 30 shotgun pellets during a weekend hunting trip at a northwest Georgia quail preserve. The victim was treated and released at a nearby hospital.

State law requires anyone born after January 1961 to complete a hunting safety education course in order to hunt or receive a hunting license. Oxendine was born in 1962.

1. How did he get a license to hunt with the required course?

2. He didn't have a license either, but was hunting on a private preserve
Oxendine was hunting with the 13-year-old as well as his 18-year-old son, J.W. None have a Georgia hunting license, although a license wasn't required because they were covered by the private preserves blanket license. But, according to the DNR report, John and J.W. Oxendine should have completed a hunter safety course as required by state law.
