A free bowhunter education field day certification event will take place on Saturday at the archery range off Skylark Road in Glasgow from 9-11 a.m.

In Montana, completion of a hunter education course is required for all hunters born after Jan. 1, 1985. In addition, all first-time bowhunters must complete a bowhunter education course and mandatory field day testing before they can purchase an archery license in the state. Each year there is a July 31 deadline for completing certification for first-time archery hunters who want to hunt during the fall season.

Hunter and bowhunter education courses are available in traditional classroom settings, as well as online through the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks’ website, at fwp.mt.gov for students who are older than 18.

To register for the Glasgow bowhunter field day log on to the FWP website, click on the “Education” section, then “Bow Hunter Education,” then the “Field Day Registration” section. Students attending the certification event can bring their own bows. Practice arrows will be provided.

For more details, check the website or call FWP at 406-228-3704.
