New Hunters Alert: Take Hunter Ed Now

If you are new to hunting and will be age 44 or younger this fall, you may need to take hunter education this summer. Every hunter (including out-of-state hunters) born on or after Sept. 2, 1971, must successfully complete a Hunter Education Training Course, or be accompanied while hunting. Minimum age of certification is 9 years of age.

Hunter education instructors are always needed. Help share the hunting legacy of conservation and sportsmanship by becoming a hunter education instructor. Find out more about joining the program.
