Free DNR Hunter Education Classes

Midwest Gun and Range is proud to provide free DNR Hunter Education.

Indiana law requires all hunters born after 1986 to obtain a hunting license. Most other states require hunter education classes regardless of your birth date.

No age limit applies to DNR Hunter Education classes. Students as young as 7-year-old have taken and passed the class. We encourage parents to attend the class with their children.

Held in our classroom, the DNR Hunter Education Class is in two sessions: Friday 6pm-9pm and Saturday 8am to 4pm. After attending both sessions, students must pass a written test to be eligible for a hunting license.

Offered free to the public, our DNR Hunter Education Classes fill up quickly. Class sizes are limited to 25 students. Register early to be sure of a spot. (A week before deer season starts is too late!) Contact us for date availabilities.

Specialty Classes (available upon request):

  • Sub-machine gun training: learn to handle a sub-machine gun using the same best practices used by law enforcement and military.
  • Tactical Handgun classes: geared to teach you professional skills in tactical weapon use.
  • Weapon retention training: learn how to confidently keep control of your gun and keep yourself out of harm’s way.
