Hunter Safety 

Hunter Safety Classes

Anyone born after January 1, 1973 is required to pass a hunter education course in order to purchase a Wisconsin hunting license. Nearly all of the other states also have a mandatory hunter education requirement to purchase a hunting license, such as Colorado - anyone born after January 1, 1949, Wyoming - after January 1, 1966, Iowa - after January 1, 1967, etc. The certificate received after completing a class in Wisconsin is recognized in all other states and also in most, if not all, Canadian provinces.

Koenig's first Hunter safety class was held in 1973. We have conducted two classes each year since 1985. During this time we have graduated over 3000 students, both young people and adults.

We presently have 17 certified instructors. They are:

  • Harold Holt since 1977
  • Don Koball - 1988
  • Dave Koball - 1996
  • Pat Holt – 1996
  • Pete Nikisch - 1996
  • John Zalewski - 2001
  • Matt Kohlman – 2005

Courses start the middle of April and the middle of August each year.   The classes are held twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 PM, for a total of six evenings.  Each course also includes two Saturday afternoon sessions, from 12:00 until 4:00PM.

Anyone who is looking for an internet class field day can contact Torry Torrison at 920-459-8856.  His group conducts one or two field days each year at the Sheboygan Falls Conservation Club.

Students should be at least 10 years old to take the class. There is no maximum age for taking a class. Adults are welcome whether they are experienced or first time hunters. Parents are encouraged to attend the class along with their children.

Our classes are limited in size to 30 students and fill up early. Anyone interested in taking a class should call well ahead of time to reserve a spot in the class.

Courses include lessons on learning about firearms and ammunition, firearm safety, hunter responsibility, wildlife conservation and management, wildlife identification, game care, and more. They include live firing of shotguns and .22 rifles. They also include much hands on training in loading and unloading guns, safe handling and carrying of firearms when alone and with others, good marksmanship techniques, and more.

To reserve a spot or for more information about either of these courses contact LisaAnn Haag at 920-980-6979 or tlhaag@charter.net
