Concealed Carry Information

Please follow the link below for information on how Hunter Education and the Carrying Concealed Weapon law. We're still reviewing the law and this webpage within the Instructors Corner will be updated as information becomes available.

On July 8, 2011 Governor Walker signed the Carrying Concealed Weapons bill with an effective date of November 1, 2011. We at the Department of Natural Resources understand instructors have questions about this legislation and how it will affect your classes.

The Department of Natural Resources is not required, nor do we have any plans to modify our current hunter education course of instruction to include any new material or training specific to handguns or carrying a concealed weapon.

Hunter Education Instructors are not authorized to provide any training related to the Concealed Carry Law in their Hunter Education Course

As was the case before, we cannot deny or prevent someone from taking the DNR hunter education course. However, we can advise customers who are interested in taking hunter education to meet the training requirements for concealed carry that they may be better served by taking a course offered by NRA, private business or technical college specific to concealed carry.

If you get questions about what will qualify an individual to have a license to carry a concealed weapon and what fulfills the required training element, please refer those questions to the state Department of Justice. The Department of Justice is the agency responsible for approving or denying concealed weapon license applications.

If you are contacted by past students or others wanting to obtain documentation that they have completed a Wisconsin hunter education course, please advise them to contact the DNR's call center at: 1-888-936-7463 or visit a DNR service center or license vendor to obtain a duplicate.

Conservation Wardens can provide additional information during their hunter education course presentations and more details will be provided as we approach this hunting season.
Thanks for your hard work in helping train tomorrow?s hunters.
