The Maryland Hunter Education Program offers two programs for Independent Study. The Internet Based Course and Home Workbook Course. Both provide an alternative delivery method of the Hunter Education Course.
Do not wait until September or later to schedule your Field Day Workshop to complete your certification. All classes may be full or have been completed by that time.
If you wait until last minute, you might not be able to hunt this year.
The Internet-based course requires that the student satisfactorily complete an
Internet-based Hunter Education course of study. Once the student has successfully completed the
internet course, the student must complete a mandatory one-day Hunter Education Field Day Workshop which includes lectures, hunter safety skills demonstration, range skills demonstration, including live firing and a final exam in order to complete all state requirements.
You must be 13 years of age or older to participate in this program. Upon successful completion of the Internet course, you will be issued a voucher to attend the field day workshop. (You print this voucher on your printer)

Please carefully read the registration instructions below, as instructions for

day workshop. Registration for all Hunter Education Field Day Workshops closes

NOTE: The Internet Study Course must be successfully completed prior to pre-registration for a field day workshop.
