First Hunter Education Classes Offered in Glasgow, for Youth and Adults
February 13, 2019
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Hunter Education course dates have been set for the first courses in the Glasgow area for this year. There will be a regular youth classroom course Feb. 28-March 3, and an adult online “field day” course on March 12. Additional youth classes will be held in late spring and summer, and several more adult field days will be offered as well.
The youth classroom course will be held in the Quonset building at the FWP headquarters in Glasgow. For youth to be eligible to hunt and be fully certified during the 2019 season, hunters must be 12-years old by January 16, 2020. 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 Feb. 28.
Classroom students need to pick up the Hunter Education Manual from the FWP office in Glasgow. Students are to read each chapter and complete all review sections before class on Thurs, Feb. 28. If workbooks are not complete, students may not be able to continue the course.
The adult field course will be held from 5:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m. on Tues., March 12, at the Quonset building at the FWP Headquarters in Glasgow. For the adult online field course, adults must pass the online hunter education course and receive a Field Day Qualifier Certificate. Adults looking to complete the online course can find instructions at fwp.mt.gov. The Field Day Qualifier Certificate and a picture ID are necessary to obtain entrance into the field course.
