TRADITIONAL HUNTER EDUCATION COURSE Discription – (from Wisconsin State Site)
Students attend a multi-day, in-person course where students learn hunter responsibility and safety through lectures, demonstrations, group discussions, practical exercises and individual study. The students take a multiple-choice exam and complete a hands-on, skills-based assessment based on information found in the printed student manual and taught during class. Upon successfully completing all portions of the course, the student is awarded a hunter education safety certificate.
LENGTH OF COURSE
This course varies in length depending on the instructor but may not be longer than 19 total hours.
Students of any age may take a traditional hunter education course. The course is taught at a 6th-grade reading level.
Traditional hunter education course availability varies depending on the area of the state and time of year. There is at least one class per county per year.

Club member Jeff Krueger started trap shooting three years ago, after not shooting since in his early twenties. Jeff fell in love with the sport and decided he wanted to get his family involved with him. He got his son-in-law Ryan Lillie to join the club and try trap shooting for the first time. Ryan also fell in love with the sport and truly enjoys it. Jeff then decided it was time to introduce his Grandson Liam Lillie to the sport. Liam is 8 years old and shoots a .410 single barrel shotgun. Liam started about two months ago and has already scored an 11 out of 25. Not bad for a youth shooting a .410. Liam also loves the sport and is now hooked like his Dad and Grandpa. It should be noted that the youngest age you may shoot at the club is eight and adult supervision on the line is a must at all times. All three love the sport and the Gun Club. Jeff and Ryan want to thank you all for welcoming Liam to the club!
Note – from a our Range Safety Officers
Thanx to all those members who have attended Sunday Safety Briefings or invested their time to get their “Certificate of Completion” at our website online!
A couple observations.
- Almost everyone who we see shooting at the pistol or rifle range are abiding by our most important rule – firearms empty and actions open while shooters are down range. Remember you can not touch a gun or ammo on the shooting benches during this time. It is OK to load magazines back at the safety tables.
- Introducing yourself to other members at the line is your best “safety habit”. Get the conversation going as you arrive and you will have successfully created an easy way to safety check intentions with each other.
- The other day I saw some unsafe firearms handling at the line. Knowing about our safety concerns – it was easy to ask the shooters if they had attended a “safety briefing” this year? Both young men said no . . . leading me to the next question – have you renewed your memberships yet this year? They said they had never been members . . . the upper gate is always open on Sundays and they had been coming for years. A strange unexpected answer to my safety concerns. I said they could go up to the club house and pay a day fee or buy a membership or they would have to leave. They had no idea this was a membership club. Please – as card carrying members – fell free to use your safety awareness and concerns to help keep our club safe.
