Hunter ed classes coming up

Print Article

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

Registration is available online at fwp.mt.gov/education/hunter. Classes are typically held in late winter/early spring and fall. Students are encouraged to take hunter education well in advance of the season they plan to hunt. Space is limited in individual communities.

Students are required to pick up materials and complete the course manual before the first night of class. Instructions for picking up materials and other info are available in the event description of each class. Students must complete the manuals before the class.

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.

To purchase a Montana hunting license, any person born after Jan. 1, 1985, must show a certificate of completing a hunter/bowhunter education course issued by Montana, any other state, or any Canadian province.
