Montana -(Ammoland.com)- The Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Bowhunter Education dates have been set for the second course offered in Glasgow.
All first time bowhunters, regardless of age, must complete a bowhunter education course to purchase an archery stamp in Montana. State law requires that anyone using an archery license, or hunting with archery equipment, must show either a previous year’s archery license or a certification from a bowhunter education course to buy a stamp. Students must be at least 11-years old on the first day of class to be eligible for certification. The course is free of charge.
The Glasgow course is set for May 15-17. Classes will run from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Friday,8-4 p.m. on Saturday, and from 3-5:30 p.m. on Sunday for the field day. The location for the classroom portion will be in Glasgow, but actual location is yet to be determined. Prospective students need to pick up their Bowhunter Education book “Today’s Bowhunter” at the FWP office in Glasgow. Please read and answer the questions in the back of the book before the first day of class, and bring all necessary forms. There are currently 20 spots available. Also, there are 10 spots available for the field day for hunters over 18 that have taken the online course. If you have any questions, contact course coordinator Carmen Corey at 406-230-1266.
