    Anyone know if my ODFW Hunter Safety card is good for the competency portion of the application or do I have to pay to take yet another class? This is in Multnomah County, FWIW.

    I believe it is! :D

    The "class" is to document that you've have some sort of formal training in the SAFE HANDLING OF FIREARMS... hunters safety course does just that.

    By the bye.
    I took the Oregon Hunter safety course almost sixty years ago. The card, rather unneeded back then, slowly shuffled it's way out of my life.
    Thinking I might need it for an Idaho CCW permit albeit ended up taking a class anyway as I went for the Utah permit instead that requires more effort.
    Nonetheless, for those having taken the Oregon coarse but not having the card any more;
    Earlier this year I went to Evelyn Street, Clackamas, Forestry Dept. to see what they could do for me. Electronics of that sort not tangible in 1959, they actually dug up the hard copies for recipients of Hunter safety certificates for the year I took it in. Even though I wasn't sure the exact year.
    While I was waited no less!
    Then, said if all I needed was the document #'s to send for verification of completion, I would not have to pay ten bucks for the duplicate and gave me a photocopy of Info sans official card, which I needed not.
    Who da thought!
    I'm only slightly impressed they still had the info but blown away at the service.
    Though not inline with the regime, some of it's minions are admirable.
