Sign up now for hunter education classes for 2012

CONCORD — Hunting seasons are almost here, so if you need a hunter education class, drop everything and sign up for one of the remaining classes for 2012.

Register at huntnh.com/Hunting/hunter_ed.htm. Just browse the calendar for the best date and location for you, then click on the course of your choice and complete the online registration form to officially join the class. Most of the remaining classes are in September.

If you have already completed the online course, sign up for the required field day now. There are a limited number of field days left available at the beginning of October. No field days will be offered from the end of October until the spring. Taking the online course does not guarantee you will find space in a field day.

Hunter education is required in New Hampshire before a new hunter can purchase his or her first hunting license (if you are age 16 or older, you need a license to hunt). To meet this requirement, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department offers Hunter and Bowhunter Education classes around the state. Participants must be at least 12 years old to achieve certification in basic Hunter Education or Bowhunter Education.

A new opportunity for sharing the hunting experience this year in New Hampshire is the Apprentice Hunting License. This program allows people a chance to hunt under the guidance of an experienced hunter, without first taking a Hunter Education course first. Learn more at huntnh.com/Hunting/apprentice.html.
