Hunting Safety Information

In an emergency, DIAL 911.

In a non-emergency, DIAL 847.549.5200.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office reminds beginning hunters that finding and taking a hunter safety course is required by law for persons born after January 1, 1980. A list of classes offered in Lake County is available. Hunters will learn about safety, ethics and many of the skills to become a successful hunter. After taking the course, a person should learn how to use their hunting weapon and practice with it often until they are proficient in using it.

The LCSO encourages hunters and trappers to visit the IDNR for answers to FAQ about licensing, FOID cards, hunting seasons, etc.
