FWP to continue temporary suspension of hunter, bowhunter ed classes

Education

Thursday, March 26, 2020

Following Montana Gov. Steve Bullock’s directive Tuesday to continue the closure of public schools for at least two more weeks, Fish, Wildlife & Parks is postponing all hunter and bowhunter education classes that are scheduled through April 10, at which point FWP will reassess the situation.

COVID-19 cases have been identified in several counties around the state. Because of the potential spread of COVID-19, several schools and other public buildings where hunter education classes are held have been closed to public gatherings.

Once the COVID-19 concerns have abated, FWP will schedule new classes.

FWP apologizes to those students who will miss their first opportunity to enter some of the drawings as a result of postponing these classes. This measure is intended to prioritize the safety and health of both students and FWP’s volunteer hunter education instructors.

For the latest information on COVID-19, please visit the Governor’s Coronavirus Task Force website at COVID19.mt.gov or the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services website at www.dphhs.mt.gov.
