Successful completion of a Hunter Education class and field exam is required for NH hunters age 16 and older who haven’t previously held a hunting license. In a Hunter Education course, you’ll learn about firearms safety and handling, outdoor safety and survival skills, NH hunting laws, your responsibilities as a hunter and more. Hunter Education has cultivated generations of safe, responsible and ethical hunters, resulting in the dramatic reduction of hunting-related firearms incidents in New Hampshire.
