Bowhunter education classes are planned for several Ravalli County communities this spring.  Schedules are available online where students can also register. Students interested in any of these classes can register online now. Go to the Education tab, select Hunter Education and click to access the course schedule.  A parent or guardian must accompany students to the first night of all classes. By state law, all first time bowhunters must complete a bowhunter education course in order to purchase a bow and arrow license in Montana.   Bowhunters born after January 1, 1985 must also show proof of completing a hunter education program.
