With COVID-19 restrictions loosening throughout the state, Hunter Education instructors are now scheduling instructor-led, in person classes. Please keep in mind the following:
- Classes will be limited to a total of 40 people, including the instructor, students, parents and other visitors.
- Masks are not required, but strongly recommended for everyone in the classroom.
- A social distance of at least six feet between individuals from different households will be observed, whenever possible.
These guidelines will also be followed during the in-person field day portion of the course. The virtual field day option will be offered until May 31. If you register for a virtual field day, your Hunter Education instructor will email you detailed instructions on how to complete the field day requirements.
For more information, check the "Additional Instructions" section of the course you wish to register for.
Online bowhunter education
This is a comprehensive, online course for national bowhunter certification. Idaho, Montana, Alaska and several other states require that you complete bowhunter education before you can hunt. The course teaches bowhunting safety, ethics, hunting methods and more.
This course does not fulfill Utah's hunter education requirement for archery hunters born after Dec. 31, 1965. Hunters must complete the hunter education course before they can purchase a hunting license.
Note: The $30 course fee is paid directly to the online course provider.
