Hunter Ed Classes To Be Offered In Glasgow

An in-person Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Hunter Education classroom course will take place in the evenings May 8-9 and May 15-16 from 5:15 to 8:45 p.m., with a field day on May 19. The third and final Glasgow in-person course will be held the week of Aug. 12-17.

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 2024 season, hunters must be 12 years old by Jan. 16, 2025. 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.

A field day for students ages 12-17 who have completed an online course will take place on May 19. The online course (course fees apply) needs to be completed before signing up for the field day. Students aged 18 and over are not required to attend a field day but are welcome to if space allows.

There will be another field day for online students scheduled the week of Aug. 12, and possibly another one later in the fall if there is interest.

Students must be registered prior to attending a class or field day. To find a class and register, or to take the online course, go to 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.

Classroom students need to pick up a manual at the Glasgow FWP office. Students need to read the chapters and complete chapter quizzes before class begins.
