huntsafe education

South Dakota's HuntSAFE (Safety And Firearms Education) courses are designed for persons age 12 through 15.

Persons who are 11 may participate, but will not be issued a Hunter Safety certification card until their 12th birthday, unless the card is clearly marked that the card is not valid until the person's 12th birthday. However, if a student's 12th birthday falls on or between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31, he/she may be issued a card and is eligible to obtain a license and hunt beginning Sept. 1 of that year.

Adults are also welcome and invited to attend.

There are three primary objectives for courses:
  1. To teach safe handling of firearms, in the home as well as in the field.
  2. To develop safe, responsible and knowledgeable hunters who are aware of our hunting heritage and who understand the hunter's role and relationship with the wildlife and the land.
  3. To certify persons under the age of 16, making them eligible to apply for hunting licenses.
  4. HuntSAFE Liability Waiver

The goal of our HuntSAFE courses is to teach young hunters safe handling of firearms, in the home as well as in the field. We also want to develop safe, responsible hunters who are aware of our hunting heritage and who understand the hunter's role and relationship with wildlife and the land, as well as certify persons under the age of 16 to make them eligible to apply for hunting licenses.More course details...

HuntSAFE ID Card

Students who successfully complete a HuntSAFE course receive an identification card containing their name, date of certification, a certification number and the signature of the instructor.

Until the student is 16, a parent or guardian must present the HuntSAFE certification card to a license vendor when purchasing the young person's hunting license.

The parent or guardian agrees, by signing the license application, to accompany the student in the field while he or she is hunting until they are 16.

Replacing your HuntSAFE ID Card

If you ever completed a HUNT SAFE course in South Dakota, you can replace your card online, or send your name, full mailing address and date of birth to: wildinfo@state.sd.us

You can print your own replacement card from the online system. Allow a minimum of two weeks for delivery for mail-in requests.

Contact

If you have questions about courses or your certification card, please contact us.
