Glasgow, MT -(AmmoLand.com)- A Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks bowhunter education online field course will take place in Glasgow on Tuesday, July 26. Students must have completed the online education course before participating in the field day.
Starting in 2017, the purchase of a Montana bow and arrow license will be required prior to applying for any archery-only permit.
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
- sign an affidavit that they have previously purchased a bow and arrow license in Montana or another state.
First time archers need to plan ahead so that they have the prerequisite bowhunter education certificate in order to apply for 2017 archery only drawings. The first drawing deadline is March 15 each year.
The field day will take place from 6-8:30 p.m. There will be about one hour of classroom instruction at the Quonset building at the FWP headquarters in Glasgow, and around one hour at the archery range.
