Youth Firearms Safety Classes

The club offers MN DNR certified instruction for youth aged 11 and up. 
In Minnesota, those born after December 31, 1979 must have a Firearms Safety Certificate to purchase a license to hunt with a firearm. Other states may have other requirements; check there if you plan to hunt out of state. The MN Firearms Safety Certificate is honored in most other states.

Students must be at least 11 years old to take this class.

The course requires attendance in all in-person classroom sessions plus the Field Day.

: The Field Day is ONLY for students taking this in-person class,
    NOT for online course students.
