Rock County to Offer Modified Fall DNR Hunter Safety Education Courses

Sheriff Knudson is pleased to announce that the Rock County Sheriff’s Office is offering four modified Fall D.N.R. Hunter Safety Education Courses in September of 2020. Sheriff Knudson’s first and foremost priority for these courses is the safety of students and instructors during the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to better facilitate these courses safely, the Department of Natural Resources implemented modified course guidelines to ensure COVID-19 safe practices are followed.

Courses have been moved to the Rock County Fairgrounds to allow for additional space and to ensure social distancing guidelines are met. Course materials will be taught outdoors using multiple small group learning stations.

Hunter Safety Education Courses will be held on the following dates:

Ø Class #1: September 12, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. @ Rock County Fairgrounds

Ø Class #2: September 13, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. @ Rock County Fairgrounds

Ø Class #3: September 26, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. @ Rock County Fairgrounds

Ø Class #4: September 27, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. @ Rock County Fairgrounds

Enroll online at http://www.co.rock.wi.us/sheriff-hunter-education

After completing the online enrollment, you will receive a confirmation email with the mandatory virtual registration date. You will also receive additional COVID-19 instructions and course requirements.

It is recommended that participants be at least 12 years of age or turn 12 shortly following completion of the class. There is a class fee of $10.00 per student, and class size is limited to thirty (30) students.

Direct any questions on these Hunter Safety Courses to Sgt. Chris Krahn at 608-757-7932.
