Hunter Safety Classes

Williams has been holding hunter safety classes since the 1950’s and have taught thousands of students.  Our goal is to pass on the hunting and shooting traditions for generations to come by educating the youth.  We have Michigan DNR certified instructors to teach all of our hunter safety classes.   Williams will offer 1-day and 2-day classes that follow the State guidelines. 


As of 8-1-2021 we do NOT have any Hunter Safety classes scheduled this fall because of a lack of DNR certified instructors.  Until we line up certified instructors, we will not be able to have any classes.  If any customers know of any DNR certified instructors willing to teach then please have them immediately email  We apologize for this inconvenience and we are working hard as we can to get instructors.
