The sign up for the next hunter education class in Sturgeon Bay is this coming Saturday. DNR Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha says the class is a very important part of teaching gun safety for hunters of all ages.
Anyone born on or after January 1, 1973, must complete the hunter education course to get a hunting license in Wisconsin. The class is open to any age but students are encouraged to wait until they turn 12 years old before taking it, according to Kratcha. Enrollment for classes will be from 10 am until 2 pm at Howie’s Tackle in Sturgeon Bay on Saturday. Classes start up at the end of February and the beginning of March.
