Guam Hunting Laws and Regulations

Who is required to complete hunter education in Guam?

The completion of the Hunter Education Course (Basic Hunter Safety) is not required for hunting on Guam lands outside of the military areas; however, completion of Hunter Education Course may be used to satisfy certification in other states to purchase a license. In addition, some Advanced Hunter Education courses may require completion of the basic course.

Is completion of the Guam state agency-approved course required in order to buy a license?

No, the completion of the course is not required to buy a license. The course may be required to hunt on military lands. Contact the military base directly for official and updated regulations.

Elsewhere

Hunting education is currently required in several U.S. states and Canadian provinces.

Reciprocity

All U.S. states, provinces, and other countries that have mandatory hunter education requirements will accept the Guam Hunter Education Certificate. Likewise, Guam will accept Hunter Education certifications that are issued by other jurisdictions that meet official IHEA-USA requirements. (This is known as “reciprocity.”)

What Makes a Course Approved?

To be approved by the Guam Department of Agriculture Division of Aquatic & Wildlife Resources, a course must teach hunters to become:

  • Safe (by following all hunting safety rules)
  • Responsible (about hunting, wildlife, conservation, and hunting laws)
  • Knowledgeable (by knowing and demonstrating acceptable behavior and attitudes while hunting)
  • Involved (in joining and participating in hunting and conservation organizations)

Meets IHEA-USA Standards

This Guam Hunter Ed online hunting education course was developed in accordance with the standards set forth by IHEA-USA and meets the requirements of the Guam Department of Agriculture Division of Aquatic & Wildlife Resources hunter safety program.

About the Standards

In 1999 the International Hunter Education Association (IHEA-USA) adopted a set of performance guidelines for basic hunter education courses. These standards have been used internationally by hunter education administrators to evaluate minimum core content in hunter education courses. Industry partners, including the Guam Department of Agriculture Division of Aquatic & Wildlife Resources and Hunter Ed, have used the revised standards to develop new student manuals and alternative delivery methods for hunter education.
