The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife’s Hunter Education Course is more than a “gun safety” class. Each course is taught by a trained, certified volunteer instructor according to statewide standards. The course covers the following topics: Proper Handling = 2 Hours Rifle and Shotgun = 2 Hours (1 hour each) Survival/First Aid = 2 Hours Hunter Responsibility = 2 Hours Map and Compass = 2 Hours Landowner Relations = 1 Hour Time as Needed in Course = 4 Hours Students are provided with a course handbook, outdoor survival information, and additional handouts. Courses involve lectures and demonstrations by instructors, homework, field experiences and a final written exam. The minimum length for this kind of course is 12 hours, although many will average more. You must attend both days of the class in order to receive your certificate.
