HuntSafe Field Day

Spend a day learning hunting safety with Outdoor Recreation and South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Outdoor Campus at the Ellsworth Air Force Base trap and skeet range. Must be a DoD cardholder with access to Ellsworth AFB.

HuntSAFE courses are designed for persons age 12 through 15. Persons who are 11 may participate, but will not be issued a Hunter Safety certification card until their 12th birthday, unless the card is clearly marked that the card is not valid until the person's 12th birthday. Adults are also welcome and invited to attend. Your HuntSAFE certification does not serve as bowhunter education certification.

Students who successfully complete a HuntSAFE course receive an identification card containing their name, date of certification, a certification number and the signature of the instructor.

Until the student is 16, a parent or guardian must present the HuntSAFE certification card to a licensed agent when purchasing the young person's hunting license.

HuntSAFE Independent Study Course

The Independent Study HuntSAFE course is a blended learning course where a student completes their coursework online at their own pace and as their schedule allows. The student must sign up for an independent study field day prior to starting the independent study course. The course features English and Spanish voice narrations, realistic illustrations and students can study for free and pay only when they pass.

Once complete, they will participate in an in-person field day for about 4-6 hours. At the field day, the student will review the knowledge and skills they learned online and take a written HuntSAFE final exam.

After completing their online component the student will pay $17.99 fee to receive their field day qualifier voucher.

To start or view the online course, visit www.hunter-ed.com/southdakota.
