Last Hunter Education Classes Offered in Glasgow, for Youth and Adults
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Hunter Education course dates have been set for the last hunter education courses in the Glasgow area for this year. There will be an adult online "field day" course on August 23, and a regular youth classroom course August 25-27.
For the adult online field course, adults must pass the online hunter education course and receive a
Field Day Qualifier Certificate. This Field Day Qualifier Certificate and a picture ID are necessary to
obtain entrance into the field course.
The adult field course will be held from 5:30 p.m.-9 p.m. on Tuesday, August 23, at the Quonset building at the FWP Headquarters in Glasgow.
For youth, to be eligible to hunt and be fully certified during the 2016 season, hunters must be 12 years-old by January 16, 2017. Students aged 10 and 11 can take the course and hunt as an apprentice, but will not be fully certified until the year they turn 12. All registrants for this event must be 10 years of age by August 25, 2016.
The youth classroom course will also be held in the Quonset building at the FWP headquarters in Glasgow. Classes will run from 5:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 25, from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Friday, August 26, and from 8-11 a.m. on Saturday, August 27.
Classroom students need to pick up the Hunter Education Manual from the FWP office in Glasgow. Before students can pick up a manual, however, they must be registered and have printed and signed all necessary forms.
Students are to read each chapter and complete all review sections before class on Thursday, August 25. If workbooks are not complete, students will not be able to continue the course.
