More than a million people have graduated from the Wisconsin DNR’s hunter safety program.
The Department of Natural Resources started the program in Dunn County 45 years ago. The basic course consists of 10 hours of instruction, including demonstrations and practical exercises. Students learn how to prevent hunting accidents by seeing what can cause them. The state reports more than 25 thousand students completed the program for hunters last year.
The DNR gives volunteer instructors credit for the fact the state had no fatal hunting accidents the last two gun-deer seasons.
