Bowhunter Education classes are currently being held throughout the state. Opportunities to take those classes this year will end July 31. As a reminder: All resident and nonresident youths, 12 through 17 years of age, are required to present a Montana Hunter Education Certificate when purchasing any hunting license. Those same youths also are required to present a Montana Bowhunter Education Certificate to purchase a Bow and Arrow license.
Adult bowhunters must show a previous year's license that allowed them to bowhunt in any state or province or a certificate from a Bowhunter Education course. Those bowhunters who cannot show proof of any year's license must complete a Bowhunter Education course.
