About this Event:

A hunter safety field day will be held at the DNR pocket park. A parent or guardian must accompany a child under the age of 10. This class is open to those ONLY who have already taken the online hunter safety course. You MUST bring your certificate of completion of the online hunter safety course to the field day. You may want to bring your own snack/drink as this will not be provided. The class is 4 hours long, part of the class will be held outside. Please plan accordingly.

If you are a parent/guardian who is accompanying your child you do NOT need to register as a student unless you will be taking the class and needing hunter safety as well. If you wish to come along with a student and not take the class yourself that is alright but if this is the case please do NOT enroll yourself in the class.

** YOU MUST PROVIDE AN EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN SIGNING UP FOR THE CLASS, IF FOR SOME REASON THE CLASS GETS CANCELED THIS IS HOW YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED. **

About the Program

Overview:

The main purpose of the hunter education field day course is to provide an alternative to the traditional course. This course is the same as the traditional hunter education course; however, the classroom portion is completed by either, online training or as a take home study format. 
In order to purchase a hunting license in Michigan, an individual born on or after January 1, 1960, is required to successfully complete an approved hunter education course. There are two different formats for successfully completing the field day course. Students must take either, the online course or the take home study, then complete the field day in order to earn a hunter safety certificate. Students choosing the online course followed by the field day must present a copy of their certificate of completion (voucher) of the online course at the start of the field day. The online course is fee based and can be taken at https://www.hunter-ed.com/michigan/. The second format is take home study. Students register for the field day and pick up the student manual, a minimum of one week prior to the field day. Take home study students must complete the chapter review questions and present them at the start of the field day. Michigan’s hunter education course is taught by a dedicated core of certified volunteer instructors and Michigan conservation officers.
