Hunter and bowhunter education courses are open to registration across northwest Montana.

A student must be at least 10 years old to register for Montana hunter education courses. Students ages 10-11 can take the course and hunt as an apprentice but will not be fully certified until the year they turn 12. There is no maximum age limit. Anyone 18 or older can complete an online course but must still attend a field course to become certified. Students must attend all classroom sessions, the field course, and pass a final exam to become certified.
