In Montana, completion of a hunter safety education course is required for all hunters born after Jan. 1, 1985. Sessions taught in a traditional classroom setting are free, and students must be at least 11 years old to attend.
For those 18 or older, hunter and bowhunter education courses may be taken online through the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ website at fwp.mt.gov. Online students, however, must pay a small administrative fee.
