Indiana Hunter Education

Indiana Hunter Education is a program administered by the Department of Natural Resources, Law Enforcement Division, Outdoor Education Section. The program is offered free of charge in all 92 of Indiana’s counties and is taught my volunteer instructors and Indiana Conservation Officers. It teaches hunting safety, firearms and archery safety, ethics and responsibility, habitat fundamentals, wildlife identification and much more. The Indiana Hunter Education Association is made up of Hunter Education instructors. The association’s sole mission is to support the Department of Natural Resources in the delivery of the Hunter Education program. They work hand in hand with the department to provide the public with information about the program.

At the Deer, Turkey and Waterfowl Expo we will be offering several ways to interest people in hunting and hunter education. Our most popular attraction is the Laser Shot simulated shooting system. Participants will have the opportunity to go hunting with us and shoot deer with a laser gun in realistic shooting scenarios. We will also have an interactive display of pelts from many of Indiana’s furbearers. Experienced hunters and trappers will be on hand to answer questions about furbearing wildlife in Indiana. We will also offer information about upcoming Hunter Education classes, the Indiana Archery in the Schools Program and state tournament, 4H Shooting Sports, Becoming an Outdoors Woman, the Karl E Kelley Memorial Conservation Officers Youth Camp and the C O Mollenhour Conservation Camp.
