Hunter safety certificates extended
LANSING – Eligible hunter education students will be allowed to purchase a Michigan hunting license through June 1, 2021 — prior to completing the required field day. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Division administers the state’s hunter education program and is providing a temporary solution due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Field days — in which students must successfully demonstrate hunter safety skills to a certified instructor — are the required final step in earning a DNR hunter education safety certificate for online and take-home study students. A safety certificate is required to purchase a Michigan hunting license.
Eligible students will be able to print their temporary certificates from their online Kalkomey student portal. Kalkomey Enterprises, LLC is the DNR’s online recreation education provider.
Students need to present their temporary certificates when purchasing licenses.
