Women Only hunter ed course available for NH residents

From the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department

-- Women can take advantage of a special women-only hunter education course offered by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department this fall. The course entails self-paced online study, a written exam and a field day in Holderness, N.H. There is a $15 fee. Participants must be 15 years of age or older.

New Hampshire hunting laws and regulations, firearms handling, how to use a map and compass  and hunting safely are the focus of the course. There are two required parts to the women-only hunter education course, and both must be successfully completed for certification.

After passing the online exam, participants register by Sept. 28 for the women-only field day by calling  Lisa Collins at the Hunter Education office at (603) 271-3214. The women-only field day on Oct.4  at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness, N.H., includes both written and field exams.

A New Hampshire conservation officer will discuss hunting laws and regulations, followed by a brief review and written exam. Students also participate in a firearms-handling session, a map and compass lesson and a live-fire course, capped off by a field exam.
