The Shawnee County Hunter Education Association is a not for profit organization and designated as a 501 (c ) 3 organization with the IRS. Its membership is made up of certified instructors, who teach the mandated Hunter Education program for the State of Kansas. All instructors within the Association are volunteer instructors, who willingly give their time and knowledge to further the Hunter Education program and youth shooting sports in the Shawnee County area.
The Association teaches a minimum of four Hunter Education classes each year. Those classes are scheduled in the months of March, August, September and October. The March class is classroom only, with no live fire associated with it, to accommodate those persons who are unable to attend classes on the weekend. The other three classes allow for live firing on the rifle, shotgun, and archery ranges, as well as a practical field course. Class information and upcoming dates can be located under the “Class Schedule” button. There you will be able to pre-register for the desired class.
The Association also opens all of its shooting ranges to the public several times per year. The open ranges include a 100 yard rifle shooting area, with an associated pistol shooting area, a trap house equipped with a wobble trap, and a 3D archery range. Very minimal fees are asked to offset the costs of maintenance. See the “Open Ranges” button for more information.
The Association also conducts youth hunts associated with its classes, youth shooting events, special classes for groups such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and other outdoor educational events to further educate the youth of the area. All activities are done at NO COST to the participants. If you are interested in donating to help further our efforts, or become an instructor, please contact us under the “Contact US” button.
