Hunter Education In-Person Class Offered In Hinsdale
January 18, 2023
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Hunter Education course dates have been set for Hinsdale. An in-person classroom course will take place after school hours from Feb. 6-11. All hunter education classes are free of charge.
In-person, instructor-led hunter education classroom courses are available to anyone age 10 and older and provide new hunters with a hands-on learning experience. In-person courses are led by volunteer instructors who are passionate about preserving Montana’s hunting tradition, teaching firearm safety, ethics, and other outdoor skills.
For youth to be eligible to hunt and be fully certified during the 2023 season, hunters must be 12-years old by January 16, 2024. Students aged 10 and 11 can take an in-person course and hunt as an apprentice but will not be fully certified until the year they turn 12.
Students must be registered prior to attending a class. To find a class and register, go to https://fwp.mt.gov/education/hunter-education. Make sure to print, read and sign any necessary paperwork ahead of the class. The links for these documents can be found in the “required files” section of the class information web page. This class requires students to pick up a manual and complete chapter quizzes before class begins. Manuals are available at the FWP office in Glasgow or from the course instructor, Gifford Fjeld.
