Last Call for Hunter Education! Hunting Season Is Here – Are You Ready?

CONCORD, N.H. – The carefree days of summer may seem to go on forever, but for hunters the time to head afield is right around the corner. Are you ready for the hunting season?  Don’t let your plans go awry because you need hunter or bowhunter education.  Here’s the last opportunity to get the certification you need! Go to www.HuntNH.com; click "Hunting," and then "Hunter Education."  Under "Find a Class," you’ll see links to traditional hunter and bowhunter education classes, as well as to the online hunter education course (keep in mind that you must complete the online course and exam, register for and attend a Field Day in order to achieve certification).  Click the link you need, and browse the calendar for a nearby course.  Simply click on the course of your choice, and complete the online registration form to officially join the class.

In New Hampshire, new hunters must take a hunter education course before they can purchase their first hunting license (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 classes around the state (as well as Trapper Education for those seeking a trapping license).  To achieve certification in basic Hunter Education or Bowhunter Education, participants must be at least 12 years old; you must be at least 15 years old to take the online Hunter Education course for certification.

“It’s easier than ever to find a class, register, and get certified in time to have your best hunting season ever,” says Pete Davison, Hunter Education Coordinator.  “Our hunter, bowhunter, and trapper education instructor teams are once again offering numerous classes all over the state to serve the needs of local hunters.  But don’t wait!  Classes are filling up fast!”

PLEASE NOTE:  Registering for courses must be done online.  Walk-in registrations at classes are no longer accepted. If you have questions, please call the Hunter Education Program at 603-271-3214.
