Hunter Education course or field day registration

Learning to hunt is an adventure that can last a lifetime, and ODFW Hunter Education is a great way to start.

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 here.
