Students may pre-register online by visiting the FWP Web site at http://fwp.mt.gov and following the links to “education” and “hunter education.” Students must attend the registration night for orientation and to pick up class materials.

Anyone born after Jan. 1, 1985, must take a hunter education class to qualify for a Montana hunting license. Students younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to register. There is no maximum age and adult hunters, including parents, are encouraged to take the class and earn hunter education certification.

The classes teach Montanans to be safe, responsible and ethical hunters. The free classes are taught by certified volunteers and include a registration/orientation night, a full week of classes and a hands-on field day. Students must attend all sessions, pass the class and successfully complete field day activities to be certified.

Students older than 18 years old may take the class online and complete a special hands-on field day. To complete the class, go to http://fwp.mt.gov and follow the “education” and “hunter education” links. The field day for online students is set for 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 15 at the Yellowstone Bowman’s Archery Club Range west of Laurel. Students who complete the online class will be directed to registration information for the field exercise.
