Hunters Education to Go Virtual in Wisconsin

(Wisconsin) Students of all ages can earn their Wisconsin hunter education safety certification through a single, online-only hunter education course under a temporary change approved by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The temporary change allows those under age 18 to take the online-only course through December 31st. Those interested in taking the online-only course who are over 18 years of age may continue to do so. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the DNR reviewed the available methods for delivering hunter education. A survey of volunteer instructors showed support for exploring alternatives to the traditional in-person hunter education course. Students of the online-only course will be required to pay the approved online vendor fee plus the $10 state-required course fee.
