Are you a safe, ethical hunter with at least five years of hunting experience and a passion for passing this historic Wisconsin tradition on to future generations? We need your help to teach Hunter Education and Learn to Hunt programs.
Wisconsin’s Hunter Education program has a standard, internationally approved curriculum. Curriculum focuses on the basics like firearm safety and specific hunting scenarios. Hunter Education is required for all Wisconsin hunters born after Jan. 1, 1973.
The Learn to Hunt program is a Wisconsin-specific program intended to teach novice hunters additional skills beyond those covered in the Hunter Education program. These classes are a great opportunity to share your first-hand knowledge and experience with the next generation of Wisconsin hunters.
Learn more about each of these great programs on our outdoor skills webpage.
Through both programs, the DNR can offer a variety of opportunities to help facilitate hunting for people of all ages, experience levels and backgrounds while ensuring that hunting in Wisconsin stays safe and relevant for future generations.
These critical programs are only possible with the help of volunteer instructors across Wisconsin. If you have hunting experience, please consider becoming a volunteer instructor for either Hunter Education, Learn to Hunt or both!
Know a lot about hunting but not a lot about teaching? No problem – we can help train you. Reach out to your local outdoor skills trainer for more information about becoming a certified volunteer instructor.
