Hunter Education Program
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office supports the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks Hunter Education Program which is sponsored by the Lawrence Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #2. All persons born after July 1, 1957 are required to pass a Hunter Education Program to hunt. Additionally, parents and siblings who may not be interested in hunting, but who live in a home where firearms are stored, are encouraged to attend. Kansas Hunter Education Certification is reciprocal with all 50 states in the United States. There is no fee for the class.
Effective January 1, 2005, a minimum age requirement for the Hunter Education Program was established at 11 years of age. However, other changes in the law make it possible for children under 11 to hunt under certain conditions. Persons with questions should consult the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks website for guidance on hunting regulations.
The Douglas County Area Coordinator for the Hunter Education Program is Sergeant Max Miller of the Lawrence Police Department. The classes are funded by the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #2 and The National Wild Turkey Federation. There are usually three classes offered each year: two in the fall and one in the spring. Exact dates will be posted each year approximately one month before classes begin. Once the dates are posted, you may sign up for any of the classes by calling the Lawrence Police Department at 785-832-3288. This is a voice mailbox that has been set up to take registration for classes. The voice mailbox is only monitored during enrollment periods.
Pre-registration is required due to limited class size. When class dates are established, they will be posted in the Lawrence Journal World, announced on 1320 KLWN.
