Time to Sign Up Online for May Hunter and Bowhunter Education Courses

CONCORD, N.H. – Now is the time to register for Hunter and Bowhunter Education classes, so you can get your hunting license and head for the woods! Many new courses begin in May.

New hunters must take a hunter education course before they can purchase their first hunting license in N.H. (those age 16 and older need a license to hunt). To meet this requirement, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department offers Hunter and Bowhunter Education courses around the state (as well as Trapper Education for those seeking a trapping license).

Hunter and bowhunter education instruction and course materials are provided free of charge; instructors may charge up to $5 per student to cover the use of facilities. To receive a certificate of completion in basic Hunter Education or Bowhunter Education, participants must be at least 12 years old.

PLEASE NOTE:  Registration for all courses must be done online. Registering on the first day of class (walk-ins) is no longer an option. To find a course if you do not have computer access, call the Hunter Education Program at 603-271-3214.

To register, go to www.huntnh.com/Hunting/hunter_ed.htm.
