Hunter education is not just for kids and not just for hunters. The program is for anyone who enjoys the outdoors and has an interest in conservation. The course is also an excellent refresher for veteran hunters. All residents and non-residents born after June 30, 1979 must complete a hunter education course before obtaining a hunting license. In addition, all youth hunters must have completed hunter education to participate in refuge hunts, including youth hunts.
