-- Women interested in taking Hunter Education in the company of other women can now sign up for a special women-only hunter education course. It involves self-paced online study and an online exam, plus a Field Day on July 21 in Holderness. All participants must be 15 years of age or older.
Women are welcome to participate in traditional hunter education courses and field days, according to Tom Flynn, manager of the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center. The special course simply offers an alternative.
There are two required parts to the Women-only Hunter Education Course, and both parts must be successfully completed for certification.
The first part is to complete the online Hunter Education Course at http://www.hunter-ed.com/newhampshire/index.html.
This is followed by taking an online exam. There is a $15 fee to take the exam. In order to print out the Field Day Qualifier Exam Certificate, which you will need to gain entry to the Women-Only Field Day, you need to successfully pass the online exam.
Next, after passing the online exam, register for the July 2 Women-Only Field Day at http://www.huntnh.com/hunting/hunter_ed.htm.
There is no charge for this Field Day at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness. It includes both written and field exams.
A New Hampshire Conservation Officer will discuss state hunting laws and regulations; a brief review and written exam follow. Women also participate in a firearms-handling session, a map and compass lesson and a live-fire course, capped off by a field exam. After the successful completion of the exams, you will be a certified hunter, ready to buy a license and enjoy a great hunting season.
