IDNR Hunter Safety Education Certification

Illinois Department of Natural Resources Hunter Safety Education Certification:
YOU MUST PRE REGISTER (registration website below)
Friday February 28th 5pm-9pm
Saturday February 29th 8am-5pm

A 1996 state law requires that all hunters born on or after January 1, 1980, successfully complete the hunter education course before they can receive their first hunting license. Participants completing the hunter education course receive a Hunter Education Certification card verifying they have passed the course of instruction. The minimum ten hour course includes instruction in firearms safety, hunter ethics, tree stand safety, safe firearm handling, first aid, survival techniques, game laws, and regulations.

All students completing the course must be in attendance the entire time. Any students under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult for the entire class. In order to successfully complete this course all participants must attend the entire class and correctly answer at least 80% of the questions on the course test.

There is no charge for the class and a lunch will be provided for free on Saturday. Please feel free to bring snacks and drinks for yourself Friday and Saturday. All students will need to bring a pencil or pen and a notebook to take notes throughout the class. The course test will be given Saturday afternoon. All class participants will know their test results before leaving Saturday afternoon. Please check your email the day before the class. If for some reason we must make changes to the class an email will be sent out.
