Hunter Education Skills Classes

Two in-person hunter education skills classes are offered by the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC).  The classes will be Tuesday, Oct. 12, at Lathrop High School and Wednesday, Oct. 13, at Hamilton High School. Both classes are from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m.

They will need to complete the knowledge portion of the class prior to the skills session. That can be done by filling out the chapter review questions in the student manual, or youths ages 11 to 15 can complete the knowledge portion online for a fee paid to the provider. Printed student manuals are available at MDC’s Northwest Regional Office in St. Joseph or at the Chillicothe office or can be ordered online for free at

Besides teaching safety skills, the hunter education course also teaches basic hunting skills to help newcomers to the sport get started and be successful. Registration is required.
