Hunters Education Field Day Course

October 14 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Dubuque County Conservation Board is hosting a Hunters Education Field Day Course. The event will be held as on Thursday, October 14th from 5 – 9 p.m. at Swiss Valley Nature Center.

Hunter education is a mandatory program that is designed to introduce students to several life-long skills that are important to many different types of outdoor recreational opportunities. The course teaches students basic survival and first aid skills, water safety, wildlife identification, and the basics of wildlife management, hunting laws, and firearm/archery safety.

Field Day courses are typically 3-4 hours in length and include firearms handling, ethics & responsibility, Iowa hunting laws, and a final exam. In order to receive certification, a student must successfully complete an Iowa approved online Hunter Education Course prior to registering and attending a field day.

A person who is 11 years old or older may enroll in a course, but those who are 11 and successfully complete the course shall be issued a certificate that becomes valid on that person’s 12th birthday.

Registration is required. Register HERE
