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 put in for applications for 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. Note: Classroom seats may be limited, and those students turning 12 or older may be given priority over younger students.
