From the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department
-- Volunteer Hunter and Bowhunter Education instructor teams in New Hampshire's Fish and Game Department have conducted over 125 classes this year, certifying hundreds of new hunters. Remaining classes are filled, and the online Hunter Education course is closed for 2010.
Hunters who have completed the online Hunter Education course including passing the online test can still register online to and attend a Field Day at http://www.huntnh.com/Hunting/hunter_ed.htm. Attendance at a Field Day completes the Hunter Education certification. Walk-in registrations are no longer accepted.
Hunters with questions or who need help registering for a field day should call the Hunter Education Program at (603)271-3214. Those attending the Field Day need to bring a printout of their Field Day Qualifier Exam Certificate and $5 per person for the Field Day.
In New Hampshire, new hunters must take a hunter education course before they can purchase their first hunting license. Those age 16 and older need a license to hunt. To achieve certification in basic Hunter Education, participants must be at least 12 years old, and must be at least 15 years old to take the online Hunter Education course for certification.
