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.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
