Glasgow, MT -(AmmoLand.com)- Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is offering a hunter education field course May 24-June 2, geared to adult women that are looking to receive hunter education certification and a more in-depth understanding of firearm safety and operation and other hunting-related topics.
The course is planned for May 24, 26, 31 and June 2 from 6:30-9 p.m. each evening at the Missoula FWP office (3201 Spurgin Road). This 10-hour course goes beyond the minimum requirements for adults to receive their hunter education certification and offers plenty of hands-on instruction and field experience.
Participants will learn safe gun handling (shooting positions, carries, calibers and actions); what to do after the shot (tracking, field dressing, transporting animals); regulations and wildlife management (including seasons, licenses, permits); hunting access (public land, private land and Block Management Areas); hunting ethics and more.
This course is also meant to complement courses offered through the Becoming an Outdoors Woman summer workshop (fwp.mt.gov/education/bow), where students can take shooting and hunting related classes.
Following the completion of the online course and this practical field course, students will receive a hunter education certificate, required for anyone born after January 1, 1985 to hunt in Montana.
