If you are under 18 years of age you must attend and pass the Hunter Internet Field Day to complete your hunter education certification. To locate and sign up for the Hunter Internet Field Day in your area, go to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website at https://gowild.wi.gov/customers/safetyedclass.
Important! Bring your Online Course Completion Voucher to the Hunter Internet Field Day as proof of having completed the online course.
Warning! Passing the online course does not guarantee you a spot at the Hunter Internet Field Day.
