Hunter Education

Anyone born after January 1, 1972 who wants to purchase a hunting license in Iowa must have successfully completed a Hunter Education course. The minimum age for certification is twelve, though students may take the class when they are age 11. 

Classes are held in Louisa County in March and August. Additional classes are offered in throughout Iowa. There are also classes with online classroom training supplemented by field training. For more information about upcoming classes outside of Louisa County, go to DNR Training Center.
