Official Montana Hunting Safety Course Link to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks

Hello, hunter! Montana's online hunting course has moved. Click here to go to the latest version of the Today's Hunter in Montana course—the official hunting safety course of Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.

The following course material is for reference only. Please go to the new course to complete your Montana certification.

Firearms in a Boat

The same rules apply as when transporting firearms in a vehicle­—unload and case firearms before transporting them. The action should be open or the gun broken down, whichever makes the firearm safest.

Before boarding the boat, place the unloaded firearm into the bow (front) of the boat with its muzzle pointing forward.

When hunting with others, the first person settles in the bow position facing forward after the first gun is placed. Next place the second unloaded firearm in the stern (rear) of the boat with its muzzle pointing rearward. Then, the second person settles in the stern position facing rearward. Repeat the procedure when unloading from the boat.
