Unfortunately, the current Executive Direction by the Governor requires a temporary suspension of all DNR classes which includes the 2021 Hunter's Safety Class.
Those wishing to attend a Hunter's Safety Classare reminded they can go to the DNR Website and complete the classroom portion of the class. After completion, you will need to still complete the range portion of the class. Check back later in the spring for further details.
Also, a new hunter or 'Apprentice Hunter' can use this status for 2 years.

Unfortunately, the current Executive Direction by the Governor requires a temporary suspension of all DNR classes which includes the 2020 Hunter's Safety Class. Stay tuned to this site for further details.
The Straits Area Sportsmen's Club continued with its mission of introducing today’s youth to the outdoors by co-sponsoring DNR Hunter Safety training. Hunter education courses teach new hunters responsibility, ethics, firearm safety, wildlife conservation, and wildlife identification, game care, survival, and first aid.
You need to successfully complete the class if you were born on or after Jan. 1, 1960, and will buy a hunting license in Michigan. Many times other states may require that a Hunter show their card when purchasing their out of state license.
This official training program is developed to meet the standards for Hunting safety education established by Michigan. Hunter Ed is the only safety course provider that develops print materials on behalf of government agencies responsible for Hunting laws and regulations.
This is 4–6 hours, depending on the number of students attending and will include:
· a classroom session
· outdoor shooting
· blood trailing
· demonstrations of a tree stand safety
· survival skills
Most of the classroom topics will pertain to Michigan-specific regulations and issues that are not covered in this online course. Be sure to have proper clothing for outdoor sessions.
After attending and passing the Field Day portion of the Hunting education requirement, you will receive your Hunter Education Certificate.
A young person can also take the online course to find out more information on the class click on the tab above. The student will need to find a field day near them to complete the class.
