Hunter Ed Courses are Being Held Now

Vermont Fish & Wildlife says anyone interested in taking a hunter education course should consider doing so this summer, because fewer courses will be available in October and November.

"Invariably many people are disappointed when they can't find a hunter education course being given in the fall," said Fish & Wildlife's Nicole Meier who oversees Vermont's Hunter Education Program. "We actually have more courses available now because many of our certified volunteer instructors have more time to give the courses before hunting seasons begin."

Completion of a free course is required prior to purchasing a person's first Vermont hunting, bow hunting or trapping license.

Upcoming courses and information are listed on the Vermont Fish & Wildlife website ( For more information about hunter education in Vermont, visit or call 802-828-1193.
