Bowhunter Education Class scheduled in Three Forks
June 21, 2023
Volunteer instructors will teach a Bowhunter Education course in Three Forks early next month.
The class will be July 1 and 2 at Three Forks High School's tech education classroom across from the football field. Students must register for the class in advance by visiting register-ed.com/events/view/200120.
Students will also need to pick up a Bowhunter Education course manual from a Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks office and read it prior to the first day of class.
All first-time bowhunters in Montana must complete a Bowhunter Education course or show proof of a prior year's archery license from another state or province.
All classes are free, and students must be at least 12 years old by Jan. 16, 2024, to take a Bowhunter Education class this year.
Hunter and Bowhunter Education classes are taught by skilled volunteer instructors and offer hands-on learning experiences, mentoring opportunities and the ability for students to ask questions of experienced hunters.
Students learn how to handle firearms and archery equipment safely, basic survival skills, hunting ethics, wildlife management, game identification, landowner-hunter relations, and Montana hunting laws and regulations.
