Hunter Safety


West Walker is proud to support the DNR Hunter Safety program. Instructors are certified by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Our instructors volunteer their time and expertise to teach and make hunting the truly safe sport it is.

This is a twelve hour course consisting of online and classroom instruction as well as practical hands-on training. Class work consists of learning and understanding the hunter safety book, various demonstrations, and the written safety test. Students are also given hands-on experience with shot guns, pistols, and .22 rifles as well as the safe way of crossing a fence, walking in a field with other hunters, and removing a firearm from a vehicle.

On-line or home study portion of the course must be completed before attending the field day. Please dress appropriate for the weather, as the class is held outdoors. Children under 10 require a parent to be present for the entire class. Lunch will be provided.

West Walker offers two Hunter Safety classes every year, one in May and one in August. Sign up for classes begins in May. Class size is limited, so be sure to sign up early to reserve your spot.
