Hunter and Trapper education classes are taught by skilled volunteer instructors, offering hands-on learning and opportunities for students to ask questions of experienced hunters and trappers.

Montana law requires that anyone born after Jan. 1, 1985, complete a Hunter Education class or qualify as a youth apprentice hunter before purchasing a Montana hunting license. Students must be at least 10 years old to take a Hunter Education class.

To purchase a Montana resident Class C trapping license, residents 12 and older must complete a Montana Trapper Education course or have purchased a trapping license in at least three prior years in Montana or another state. This course also satisfies the requirement for wolf trapping.

Completion of online coursework is required prior to attending Trapper Education field days. The online course can be found at
