HuntSAFE / Bowhunter Safety Courses
In parnership with the SD Game Fish and Parks, NEYAC hosts multiple HuntSAFE and Bowhunter Safety courses each spring and summer. This free, classroom-style course allows students to participate in multiple in-person sessions; providing the student with knowledge and skills relative to hunting and hunter safety. To be eligible for certification, students must be present and participate in all the required sessions. Click here to view upcoming courses at the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Center.
The goal of these courses is to teach young hunters safe handling of firearms and bows, 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.
South Dakota's HuntSAFE (Safety And Firearms Education) courses are designed for persons age 12 through 15. Adults are also welcome and invited to attend.
