Student Access Instructor Access Board Access

What can you expect to learn from this course?

As with many things, you get out what you put in. Your instructor will begin with firearm safety and teach you many things about firearms themselves: how to carry and shoot firearms; how to load and unload, clean and store firearms safely. You will learn the basic skills you need to handle a firearm and hunt safely.

The second part of the course teaches you what is expected of you as a hunter. What do you think a good hunter should be? How should he or she behave?

We will look at these questions and discover things like a good hunter knows how to identify game. A good hunter causes no problems for landowners. A good hunter knows how to look after him or herself in the outdoors. A good hunter understands what is involved in wildlife management. A good hunter knows and accepts responsibility for his or her actions.

So you enjoy the outdoors more and the wildlife resource can benefit from your knowledge and actions, we want you to become a good hunter. Successful completion of this course will allow you to purchase a hunting license in Saskatchewan and set you on your way to being the best hunter you can be.
