- The various state agencies have unique bowhunting exam guidelines and
additional certification requirements. In general, passing the
online exam allows students to bypass a classroom bowhunter course and
register for a Field Day. At a Field Day, students must demonstrate
knowledge learned online to a bow hunting instructor and possibly take a
written, in-person examination. Please read your state's
guidelines for complete information.

Successful completion of a recognized bowhunter education course
is required by many states, provinces, or in special designated
bowhunting areas such as some federal lands or urban bow hunting
areas. In addition, it is possible that completion of a valid hunter
education course might be required. Therefore, it is always advisable
that you check
with your state contact regarding all the bowhunting rules and regulations
pertaining to the area where you are planning to hunt.
The Today's Bowhunter online course includes
topics such as conservation law, the ‘unwritten law’ of
the bowhunter, facts on how an arrow harvests game, bow hunting
safety, how to practice for bowhunting, lures, calls, scents, bowhunting
methods, shot placement, and the responsibilities of being a bowhunter.
Please browse any of the websites listed above and take a free bowhunter Practice
Test. If are you taking a traditional classroom bowhunter
education course, studying the material online will give you a
great headstart on the materials to be presented in your bowhunting class!
