The Hunter Safety Course, or similar approved course by another state, province or organization, is a requirement to obtaining a Michigan hunting license for anyone born on or after January 1, 1960. Even though the course is not required for persons born before that date, it is recommended, especially for beginning hunters.
Classes are taught by certified instructors who teach firearm safety and laws, basic hunting terminology, conservation, safe hunting practices, outdoor ethics, wildlife identification and management, survival, limited first aid and Michigan Wildlife Regulations. The course is free and prepares sportsmen for a safer, more rewarding experience while in the outdoors.
Also if your family enjoys snowmobiling, our FREE Snowmobile Safety class is scheduled for December 2 and 3, 2019.
