Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Hunter Education course dates have been set for the Glasgow area. There will be a youth classroom course March 7-12, and an adult field course on March 12.
To be eligible to hunt and be fully certified during the 2016 season, hunters must be 12-years old by January 16, 2017. 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 7, 2016.
For the 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 hunter education class will be held in the Quonset building at the FWP headquarters in Glasgow. Classes will run from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, and from 7:30-12:30 on Saturday. The adult field course will be held from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, beginning at the Quonset.
