Adult Field Days Set for Montana’s Online Hunter Education

SX Montana FWP

Fish, Wildlife and Parks in north central Montana has scheduled three field days for adults who have completed Montana’s online hunter education course.

The field days at FWP, 4600 Giant Springs Road, Great Falls, will be:

  • 7 p.m., July 25,
  • 7 p.m., Aug. 13,
  • 7 p.m., Sept. 24.

The online course and field day are available only to those 18 and older. Adults complete the Internet course, then a short field exercise to receive their certification card.

Field day registration is only available on the Internet to those who have successfully completed the online course, and space is limited. For more information on the online course and field course times and locations, go to the education link at the FWP website, www.fwp.mt.gov.

State law says everyone born after Jan. 1, 1985, must take hunter education before he, or she, can hunt in Montana, and the Internet course with the field exercise is an option for adults.

However, active military members who need to take a course do not need the field exercise. For more information, contact the Great Falls FWP office at 454-5840.
