To be eligible to attend any Hunter Education Internet Field Day a person must complete the online Hunter Education Course first, according to Jim Nosker, lead instructor for the Colfax Hunter Ed instructor group.
Registration is not open yet for the local September 17 Internet Field Day, hosted by Colfax Sportsmen’s Club at the Colfax/Dunn County Shooting Sports Complex. However, it’s time for potential attendees to start planning to take the internet class, Nosker said.
Information about the only approved online course is available on Wisconsin DNR’s Go Wild page at https://gowild.wi.gov/
Once on the page, a person needs to click on Safety Education and then click on Online Courses.
Students must complete the hunter ed internet online course prior to attending the field day. The online course requires students to work through units and complete multiple-choice quizzes. It’s reported to take 4-6 hours to complete.
Upon successfully completing all portions of the hunter internet field day online course, the student is awarded a field day voucher. Students must present the field day voucher to attend the in-person field day course.
During the field day students will reinforce what they learned online through hands-on firearm handling, demonstrations and practical exercises. The students take a multiple-choice exam and complete a hands-on, skills-based assessment.
Upon successfully completing of all portions of the field day course, the student is awarded a hunter education safety certificate, Nosker said.
Registration for the field day at Colfax will likely be announced the last week of August or the first week of September. Nosker explained that because the field day class is open to anyone in the state, it usually fills up within a week. Preregistration or otherwise holding spots is not possible.
