Why Hunter Education?
You will learn a great deal about hunting, firearms and wildlife in this course. You will learn that hunting involves more than shooting and killing an animal. You will also learn that safe and responsible hunting involves more than just following a few rules.
Many hunters hunt their whole lives and never stop learning. In fact, you will probably learn something new every time you hunt. This course is only an introduction. It's your responsibility to get any additional information from other sources.
To learn more about hunting, outdoor skills, and other important subjects talk to your Hunter Education Instructor, your parents, or a mentor (someone you look up to and respect). You can also ask your local game warden or wildlife biologist (a person who studies wild animals). One of the best ways to learn about hunting is to spend time with an experienced hunter you know and respect. Also, check out Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks' website fwp.mt.gov for more information about hunting.
