least 15 years or older to get your certification online. Online Hunter Ed has
two parts; please note that you must successfully complete both the online
exam AND the Field Day to achieve certification:
1. First, take the online hunter education course at
www.Hunter-Ed.com/nh using your home computer, or any computer
with access to the Internet. When you click on the link to the course site,
you will be asked to create an account with a user name and password to log
into the course. The course is self-paced; complete each chapter at your own
speed, over several days or weeks. By using your unique login, the system will
remember which chapters you've completed and which still need to be done. When
you've completed the course, you will take a final exam online.
2. After you pass the online exam, print out your certificate
of completion, and call Lisa Collins at the Hunter Education Office at
603-271-3214 to register for a Field Day. The Field Day includes hands-on
instruction in gun handling, map and compass skills, live fire and a law
presentation by a Conservation Officer.

Important differences between hunting with a firearm and hunting with archery
equipment make education vital to the future of bowhunting. This
classroom-based course emphasizes safety, ethics and responsibility. Students
discuss safety and ethical situations unique to bowhunting, and learn how
archery techniques can differ from those used with firearms. Other topics in
the 8 to 12-hour course include archery equipment, game anatomy, shot
placement, tree stand safety, game recovery and more. Several of these topics
are taught outdoors as well. Students must pass the written exam with a score
of 80% or higher. There is no field test or shooting component to a bowhunter
education course. Students register with the Chief instructor;
see schedule for info.
- Trapper Education (traditional)

trapping equipment and use, responsible trap-setting, the importance of good
wildlife management practices, and habits and traits of furbearers. Taught in
