Hunter Safety Tips

General Outdoor Safety Tips for Hunters

  • Be sure to tell someone where you are going, what time to expect your return and what to do if you are not back at expected time.
  • Make sure your cell phone is fully charged.
  • Dress for the appropriate weather/season. For example, wear layers during cooler times of the year, have rain gear available, bring hats or face coverings, etc.

Hunter Education Courses

Residents and non-residents born on or after January 1, 1961 must successfully complete a hunter education course prior to purchasing a season hunting license. However, a hunter education course is not required to purchase an Apprentice License or a three (3) day Combo Hunting/Fishing License. Hunter education courses certified or mandated by any state wildlife agency or Canadian province are accepted. Hunter Education is not required to hunt on one's own land or land of a parent or guardian.
