Brigade offers hunter safety each year in April and September.
Hunter SafetY (Fall Sign Up OPENS 8/10/17)
The Boys' & Girls' Brigade will again offer a Wisconsin DNR Hunter Education Safety course this fall. As in the past this course is taught by volunteer DNR Hunter Education Certified Instructors.
Dates for the fall course are:
Sept 11 Monday
Sept 13 Wednesday
Sept 18 Monday
Sept 20 Wednesday
Sept 25 Monday
Sept 27 Wednesday
Hours for the course are from 7-9pm, with one exception. There will be 1 night when the session will begin at 5:50pm. This night is set aside for the student to shoot in our rifle range to practice proper shooting techniques. The date for the shooting session will be assigned the first night of class so please plan to attend accordingly. If you know in advance you cannot make at least 5 of the 6 sessions, do not sign up for Hunters Education at this time.
To reserve a seat in the class, you must do so online through the Wisconsin DNR website. Registration for the class, payment of fees ($10), and distribution of the class packet will take place on Saturday, August 26 between 9:00-11:00am at the Brigade. You must register in person and pay the fee to secure your seat in the class.
The hunter education course instills in students the knowledge and skill to be a responsible and safe hunter. Students learn how hunting accidents are caused and how they can be prevented. Hunter responsibility and safety are stressed throughout the classes, which consist of lectures, demonstrations, group discussions, practical exercises, and individual study and activity assignments. Once you have successfully completed the course and the test, you will receive a temporary Hunter Education Safety Certificate from your instructor. The DNR will follow up with a permanent certification card several weeks later.
If you have any questions please call the Brigade office at 920-725-3983.
