Do you need Wyoming Hunting education?

Wyoming

You need education if you were born on or after Jan. 1, 1966, unless you have obtained a Hunter Mentor Program special authorization from the state and are hunting with a mentor.

There is no minimum age requirement to take the Wyoming Course.

You do not have to be a resident of Wyoming to take this online course.

Elsewhere

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

Why Hunting Safety Education Is Important

Since states have begun requiring hunter education, over the last 30 years hunting incidents have drastically decreased, while the number of hunters has increased. Today, hunting is one of the safest outdoor activities you can enjoy.

Reciprocity

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