Hunter Education

Hunter Education Classes

There will be no 2017 Hunter Education classes.

We do not offer the four hour follow up class to DFG’s online class.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife, to shift the function of recordkeeping from DFW to its volunteer instructors, now requires students to get a Hunter Education Document BEFORE registering at Kerleys. Afterward you must register IN PERSON at Kerleys Hunting and Outfitting and pre-pay the $20 class fee in cash. If you do not sign up in person and pay the fee at Kerleys, you do not count toward enrollment, and the class may be cancelled because of low enrollment.

This new DFW requirement, which forces you, the student, to go online and jump through their hoops, also creates an additional 40 hours of work per class for the volunteer instructors. Neither your instructors nor Kerleys staff will nag you to come to Kerleys to complete your registration in person. We will simply cancel the class. Store hours to register and pay the fee are on the right.

You can sign up for any given class the day after the previous one ends.


Register at Kerleys Hunting and Outfitting during store hours:
Tuesday through Friday 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Sunday 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
We are closed Mondays.
