For anyone that thinks they may hunt a western state in the upcoming years, take the class. More states are requiring actual bowhunter education rather than just your hunters safety card. Hate to have an opportunity to hunt out west and then realize you cant because you dont have the class.

Plus, no matter how many years you've hunted, its a good review and you learn a few interesting, new things along the way.

Only time will tell if thats true. I know I'm not wild about spending a whole day learning about something that I've been doing for 25 years but like you said, its required in some states. In my case, I'm looking at doing a bowhunt in SoDak.

It's not painful at all. Basically a field trip away from the office for a day that grants you permission to bowhunt out of state. Nice chance to meet fellow bowhunters and instructors who share the same passion. Have fun.

Not just western states. Most states require proof of a Hunter Education Course to obtain a license. (Even residents of MN born after 1979)

The IHEA (international hunter education association) has a complete list of hunter education requirements for all states, and canadian provinces:

The bowhunter ed class fulfills this qualification.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share

      I found some ice!!! Not exactly much, and there are swans in the picture indecating open water too. But it's a start.
