Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/23/2022

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is offering first-time hunters or those who need a refresher an opportunity to enroll in a hunter education course.

With most hunting incidents involve hunters older than 40, many times decades after learning firearm safety rules in their hunter safety education class, the agency says it's a good idea for get recertified.

Adults who are 18 and older may complete their Hunter Education certification requirements entirely online. The online student should expect to spend multiple hours online studying and completing the course modules. A passing score on the final exam is necessary to be certified. The online course is ideal for individuals who have had exposure to firearm handling already or will have direct access to a trustworthy mentor while handling firearms.

More than 20,000 take hunter education courses in Wisconsin each year. Anyone born on or after January 1973 is required to have a hunter education certification to purchase a hunting license, unless hunting under the Mentored Hunting Law.

All course options, links to enroll and cost information are outlined on the DNR's website.
