Hunter Safety Weekend

Each year, Forest Springs hosts a Wisconsin Hunter Safety Course for those ages 10 and up*, all on one weekend. The program begins on Friday evening and ends on Sunday afternoon. Certified instructors, who are passionate about the use of God’s great outdoors and a relationship with Him, facilitate this time with lots of hands-on learning. Included in the weekend is overnight lodging and 4 good meals (offsite pricing is available). We would love to have you join us for this event!
