Press release

A Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Bowhunter Education course date has been set for the Havre area.

A regular youth classroom course starts April 16, and an adult online “field day” course April 21.

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 an bowhunter education.

The youth classroom course will be held at the Hill County Electric Training Room in Havre. All registrants for the classroom course must be 11 years of age by April 16. To hunt during the archery-only season, youth need to be at least 12 years old by Jan. 16, 2019.

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 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 21, also at the Hill County Electric Training Room.

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

To register and learn more about the bowhunter education classes offered, people can go to the FWP website at http://fwp.mt.gov and look under the “Education” tab. If there are any questions, people can call course coordinator Nick Siebrasse at 390-0402.
