FREE HUNTER SAFETY CLASSES – 

I am happy to be able to continue offering FREE recreational safety classes.  We are in our Hunter Safety series of classes already.  Two classes have been held so far that were filled to capacity.  We have three classes remaining –

  • September 13, 14, and 16 (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday)
  • September 27, 28, and 30 (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday)
  • November 1, 2, and 4 (Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday)

The classes are held at the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office, 1025 Independence Blvd, Charlotte from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.  

Class size is limited to 25 students.  Any student under the age of 10 will need to have a parent stay with them.  Students will need to bring 2 #2 pencils and a face mask.  We will have hand sanitizer available and a small amount of supplies if students forget theirs.  Instructors will contact all students/parents before class to pre-screen everyone before coming.   

 To register, please contact Allison Bowers at 517-543-5257 or email at Abowers@eatoncounty.org.  When registering, we will need the student’s full name and birthdate.

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.

These classes fill up quickly and are by far our most popular.  Please call or email early to reserve a space.  

 Yours in Public Safety,

 Sheriff Tom Reich
