Education - Region 6
Another round of hunter education classes in Glasgow is set for April 8-12.
The free classes will run each evening from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the East Side Elementary School library. Students must attend each of the classes and are required to read their instruction manual before coming to the first class.
A mandatory field day, where practical skills are tested, will take place April 13 at the Valley County Rifle & Pistol Range north of town.
Any person born after Jan. 1, 1985, must present a hunter education certificate in order to purchase a hunting license in Montana, and students must be at least 11 years old to be certified. Field day events are also open to students over 18 who have completed their coursework online.
Class sizes for courses are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first served basis. Class registration, which requires the signature of a parent or guardian for students under the age of 18, is now taking place through the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks Region 6 office in Glasgow.
While hunter and bowhunter education programs are run and certified through FWP, most classes are taught by volunteer instructors. More instructors and assistant instructors for both types of courses are currently needed in Glasgow.
