Bow hunter education is an optional course offered to hunters to continue their education above and beyond the required Michigan hunter education course. Bow hunter education is not required in Michigan; however, it is required in other states, and this certification may satisfy other states’ requirements. There are two different formats for successfully completing the field day course. Students must take either the online course or the take-home study, then complete the field day in order to earn a bow hunter safety certificate. Students choosing the online course followed by the field day must present a copy of their certificate of completion (voucher) of the online course at the start of the field day. The online course is fee-based and can be taken at bowhunter-ed.com/michigan. The second format is take-home study. Students register for the field day and pick up the student manual a minimum of one week prior to the field day. Take-home study students must complete the chapter review questions and present them at the start of the field day. Michigan’s bow hunter education course is taught by a dedicated corps of certified volunteer instructors and Michigan conservation officers.

About the field day:

  • In person.
  • Four hours.
  • Written test (80% or better to pass) and practice assessment (pass/fail).
  • No minimum age requirement; however, students under 16 years old should be accompanied by a parent, legal guardian or other adult approved by parent or legal guardian.

Preregistration required. This is a free class for registered participants. Regular admission fees apply for building access.
