hunter education courses

Reminder to anyone needing to get hunter education certified before the fall hunting seasons, these summer classes are the last classes our office offers as we do not offer any fall classes due to the start of hunting seasons and license sales.

Enrollee must be 11 years old within the calendar year. A student enrolled in a Hunter Education class must attend all classes.

To enrolled students: Failure to attend classes without notifying the instructor will result in losing the opportunity to enroll in another class for one year. (This includes all North Dakota Hunter Ed courses)
