NH: Women-Only Hunter Education Course Offered

NH: Women-Only Hunter Education Course Offered
CONCORD, N.H. -- Women who want to take Hunter Education and prefer learning in the company of other women can take advantage of a special Women-only Hunter Education Course offered by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department this fall. The course entails self-paced online study, a written exam and a field day in Holderness, N.H., on Sunday, October 2, 2011, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Participants must be 15 years of age or older.

“This course is a great opportunity for women with busy schedules to learn the New Hampshire hunting laws and regulations, firearms handling, how to use a map and compass, and how to enjoy hunting safely so they can challenge themselves in the great outdoors this fall,” said Fish and Game Hunter Education Coordinator Josh Mackay.

There are two required parts to the Women-only Hunter Education Course; you must successfully complete both to receive certification:

1. First, complete the online study portion at your own pace. When you are ready, take the online exam (there is a fee of $15). To get started, visit http://www.huntnh.com/Hunting/hunter_ed.htm to access study materials and complete the online part of the course.

2. After passing the online exam, visit http://www.huntnh.com/Hunting/hunter_ed.htm to register online for the Women-Only Field Day to be held on Sunday, October 2, 2011, at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center, 387 Perch Pond Road, in Holderness, N.H. The Field Day includes both written and field exams. Students participate in a firearms-handling session, a map-and-compass lesson and a live-fire course, capped off by a field exam. After the successful completion of the exams, you will be a certified hunter, ready to buy a license and enjoy a great hunting season.


Fish and Game has offered Women-only Hunter Education courses annually for the past 8 years. Women also may opt for traditional hunter education courses or field days.


Review available Hunter, Bowhunter and Trapper Education courses offered by Fish and Game, and sign up for courses or field days online, at http://www.huntnh.com/Hunting/hunter_ed.htm.


Hunter education in New Hampshire is made possible by the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act. Excise taxes are collected from the sales of firearms, ammunition and archery equipment. These funds are distributed to state agencies to conduct research, manage wildlife populations, protect habitat and conduct hunter education programs.
