It's no accident that hunting is a safe activity. Today's hunters are better educated than ever before. They're going into the field knowing how to hunt safely, responsibly, and ethically ... a knowledge provided by the NH Hunter Education Program.

Anyone planning to buy a basic hunting license, archery, or trapping license in NH must complete the respective education course. Individuals may purchase these licenses by showing a certificate of completion from the appropriate course, or a previously issued license of the same type.

A word of caution: Don't wait until hunting season to take a course; it'll be too late! Courses fill up quickly in the fall months. If you plan to hunt in a state which requires proof of hunter education certification, plan to take a class in the spring or summer to avoid getting shut out of a needed course.
