Bowhunter Education Class Offered

A Montana FWP Bowhunter Education course date has been set for the Glasgow area. There will be a regular youth classroom course starting on Wednesday, May 2, and an adult online “field day” course on Sunday, May 6.

Archery hunters must have purchased a Montana bow and arrow license prior to hunting during the archery-only season. To purchase a bow and arrow license an individual must meet one of the following requirements: show completion of a bowhunter education course; show proof of purchase of a previous year’s bow and arrow license from Montana or another state

*Signed affidavits are no longer acceptable as proof of bowhunter education.

The youth classroom course will be held at the FWP headquarters in Glasgow. All registrants for the classroom course must be at least 11 years of age by May 2. To hunt during the archery-only season, youth need to be at least 12-years old by Jan. 16, 2019. This may be the only archery class offered in the Glasgow area this year, so please make plans to attend if you have an interest in hunting this archery season.

For the adult online field course, adults must pass the online bowhunter 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 1 -5 p.m. on Sunday, May 6, also at the FWP headquarters.

Classroom students need to pick up the “Today’s Bowhunter” manual from the FWP office in Glasgow. Students are to read each chapter and complete all chapter review exercises before the start of class.

Both classroom and adult students need to register online to take the course.
