Ways to take a Hunter Education class

Choose a conventional or online course

Hunters younger than 18 must take hunter education before they can hunt in Oregon. We also recommend hunter education for new or returning hunters who can benefit from a brief refresher.

ODFW will defer the field day requirement for youth hunters for the 2021 hunting season. The field day will still be required to get a hunter education certificate, but can be delayed until after hunting season. See additional details below.
