Heartland DSC conducts Hunter Education courses annually to certify new hunters so that they can participate in hunting. These courses cover important topics such as familiarity with firearms, safe gun handling practices, wildlife conservation, hunter responsibilities and ethics, personal preparedness, hunting opportunities, tree stand safety, and specialty hunting.
Students that successfully complete the course are provided the opportunity to attend a live fire clinic where Heartland DSC representatives work with them to shoot trap. For many of them, this is a first time experience.
As of September 2022, Heartland DSC has certified 270 kids for Hunter Education.
