2020 Firearm Safety Programs:
Due to Covid 19, most of the 2020 FS classes & field days have been canceled.
- WRGC has officially put just one date back on this year's calendar - August 22, 2020 (FULL). This is a field day to complete the online safety course. See below.
(We may put September 19 back on our schedule; Please submit a registration for that date as I may not advertise on the DNR site. I will know for sure by August 22 and will notify all registrants of our decision.--The August 22 date filled in one day.)
On-line & Classroom Programs:
Wealthwood Gun Club has 13 DNR Certified Volunteer Instructors for Firearm Safety and youth conservation projects. Each year, we host four On-Line Program Field Days. We also hold two Classroom Programs for students wishing to complete a "hands-on" Firearm Safety Training Program.

On-line Hunter Course - Range/Field Day Registration Info:
On-Line Course Field Day for 2020 is Saturday, August 22, 2020 - Registration form
Download the registration form and save it to your computer before filling in the information. After filling out the form, rename it using the student's name or something other than the downloaded file name. After saving the form, open it to make sure the information you entered was saved in the file. Then attach it to an email and send it to email@example.com. Due to Covid-19, WRGC is only holding one Firearm Safety Range Day in 2020. We will plan on having the normal 4 dates in 2021.
You should receive a return email indicating whether or not you have a spot in the class requested. (Allow 48-72 hours for a response). Class sizes are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. We charge a registration fee of $5.00 for the field day to cover replenishment of supplies and ammunition. This can be paid at the time of check-in. The range day will take about 6-7 hours. It starts at 8:30 am. Registered students will receive an email about 7-10 days before their scheduled date with additional information on what to bring and what to expect.
* After completing the Field Day, you will need to log on to the DNR website and enter the information from your Field Day completion form and submit $7.50 to the DNR for processing your certificate on-line. You will be able to print out your Firearm Safety Certificate while you are still on-line with the DNR. Save a copy to your computer so you can reprint it if you lose or destroy your first copy. If you are still 11 years old, your certificate will not be valid until you reach your 12th birthday.
