Bowhunter Education Certification Class

(2 Days)

Program Cost:  $50


July 12, 6pm - 8pm

July 13, 9am - 5pm

Cost $50 (Includes Saturday Lunch)


This class was designed by the National Bowhunter Education Foundation.  Successful students will receive their bow hunter certification card from the NBEF.  This class is not Hunter Education which is firearms related and is mandatory in Michigan.  However, this class teaches much more about successful and safe bowhunting.   Many states now require a bowhunter certification card for non-resident bow hunting.   This class and card will allow students to bow hunt in those states.

Students will learn:

  • Scouting

  • Scent control

  • Camouflage

  • Building ground blind

  • Using treestands safely

  • Deer anatomy

  • Shot placement

  • Field dressing

  • Tracking

  • Recovering your deer

  • First aid in the field

Trained instructors will also  review how to select and maintain bowhunting equipment.  Under strict supervision students will actually experience shooting at 3-D deer targets from ground blinds while standing and sitting.  Students will also shoot from an elevated platform at a 3-D deer target.

Parents are encouraged sit in on class or participate as a student.  If you have your own bow hunting equipment, bring it to class. If not bows and equipment will be provided.

Signed waiver of liability required.

Minimum:  10 / Maximum:  25
