The Department of Natural Resources is offering a hunter-education course in Sturgeon Bay. Classes cost $10 per student and will begin in March/April.
In-person enrollment for the classes is being held Feb. 8, 10 am – 2 pm, at Howie’s Tackle, 1309 Green Bay Road in Sturgeon Bay. Online registration will be available to enroll in any unfilled openings. To enroll online for the unfilled openings, visit dnr.wi.gov and search for “Hunter Safety.”
Hunters of any age may take the class, but youth are encouraged to wait until they will turn 12 within six months of completing the course. Students with special needs must contact the instructor at least two weeks in advance to discuss special accommodations.
The hunter-education course instills in students the knowledge and skills to be responsible and safe hunters by discussing how accidents happen and how they can be prevented.
