 All active 4-H members are eligible to participate in this SPIN (Special Interest) club, as well as anyone who was at least 8 years old, and not more than 18 years old, by September 1, 2017. If your friends are interested in the activities and in getting their Hunter/Safety Certification, encourage them to join the Hunting and Outdoor Skills SPIN club with you!

 This discipline consists of 11, two-hour workshops, with one hour of book instruction and one hour of practical application per workshop. They will be held at the Secor Sportsman’s Club (the same place as the .22 rifle and shotgun workshops), Secor. According to the policies of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), youth under the age of 10 must be accompanied to and during the safety education classes by an adult or guardian at least 16 years of age.
