Montana –-(Ammoland.com)- Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Hunter Education course dates have been set for the first courses in the Glasgow area for this year. There will be a regular youth classroom course March 6-11, and an adult online “field day” course on March 11. Additional classes will be held in June and August.
For the adult online field course, adults must pass the online hunter education course and receive a Field Day Qualifier Certificate. This Field Day Qualifier Certificate and a picture ID are necessary to obtain entrance into the field course.
The adult field course will be held from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. on Saturday, March 11, beginning at the Quonset building at the FWP Headquarters in Glasgow.
For youth, to be eligible to hunt and be fully certified during the 2017 season, hunters must be 12-years old by January 16, 2018. Students aged 10 and 11 can take the course and hunt as an apprentice, but will not be fully certified until the year they turn 12. All registrants for this event must be 10 years of age by March 6.
The youth classroom course will also be held in the Quonset building at the FWP headquarters in Glasgow. Classes will run from 5:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 7:30-10:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 11.
Classroom students need to pick up the Hunter Education Manual from the FWP office in Glasgow. Before students can pick up a manual, however, they must be registered and have printed and signed all necessary forms.
Students are to read each chapter and complete all review sections before class on Monday, March 6. If workbooks are not complete, students may not be able to continue the course.
