WI Basic Hunter Education Class
SCC hosts a Spring & Fall Hunter Education Course.
There are many benefits for taking the WI basic hunter education class. Other than a mentored hunter, everyone must complete a hunter education course to purchase any hunting license in Wisconsin if you were born after Jan. 1 1973. Club members are required to have hunter education/firearm safety training to participate in any firearm league. The certificate will serve as your small game license & you will receive other privileges from the DNR for the calendar year in which you take the class. You will also need it to apply for an out of state hunting license. The most important reason; it will help keep you and the rest of us SAFE as we share the tradition, woods & fields together.
The Wisconsin DNR hunter education course instills in students the knowledge and skill to be a responsible and safe hunter. The course follows the WI DNR curriculum. Students learn how hunting accidents are caused and how they can be prevented. Hunter responsibility and safety are stressed throughout the class. All instructors are volunteers and members of the SCC. We reserve the right to expel students that do not follow our code of conduct; especially regarding horseplay and following verbal instructions.
Anyone, of any age, can take the class. The DNR encourages people to wait until they are within 6 months &/or in the calendar year of turning 12 before taking the class. However, it should be noted that persons younger than 12 may lose some of the benefits if they take the class before age 12. Students will receive a safety education certificate upon successful completion of the course.
Students with special needs must contact the instructor at least two weeks in advance of the class date to request special accommodations or needs.
Requirements to complete the class: Complete attendance for the entire class, a proficient score on a written (true/false & multiple choice) exam and demonstrate competent knowledge & skill in safe firearm handling.
Cost of Course: $10 per student.
Registration: See the SCC Website calendar for specific spring & fall class dates. Registration begins 6 weeks before the first class date on a first come first served basis. Contact Kathy Simon at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 608-335-4447.
