The Online + Field Course is ideal for young bow hunters who already have been shooting archery and/or bow hunting. Adults should still assist them with the online course and accompany them during the field course.

The certification process consists of two parts:

  1. Online coursework: Complete the pay-for Online Bowhunter Education Course.
  2. Pre-register for and attend a “Field Course” with a TPWD-certified bowhunter education instructor.
  3. NOTE: Search and register for a field course prior to taking the online bowhunter education course.

**If you are unable to find a Field Course near you or in the time frame you need, place your information on our Wait List. We will contact instructors in your area and attempt to schedule a course.**

When you arrive at the Field Course site:

  • Bring the “Field Day” Certificate (Voucher)
  • Pay the $15 fee to the instructor.
  • Demonstrate appropriate knowledge, skills and attitude while completing the Field Day
  • Take the written exam and score at least 75% correct to pass.
  • Upon successful completion of Parts 1 and 2, you will PRINT out your permanent card once the instructor submits an online payment. The instructor will let you know. You may legally bow hunt with a valid Texas hunting license and proof of bow hunter education on certain areas (e.g. Hagerman NWR; Granite Shoals Urban Bow Hunt) or in other states  that require such certification in addition to their state’s hunter education requirements.
  • Note: A bowhunter education certificate does not take the place of a hunter education certificate or state requirement.
This class will begin at The Harber Wildlife Museum in Sherman, TX and then adjourn to the Rocking S Archery Range in Denison.  Participants need to bring a pencil or pen, a bow with target arrows, and non-alcoholic beverage to drink.  At the museum, the water fountain will be shut down and the outside portion of the class will be outside in the July heat.  Also, bring the class fee of $15 cash.  Please have the correct change.  There will also be an additional fee for the use of the archery range of $15 per person paid directly to the range. Students also need to bring the printed quiz results and proof of online class completion to show the instructor. We sill do some shooting exercises, judging distance without the aid of a rangefinder, and follow a blood trail. Those who wish to shoot the entire 3-D course, for a score or just for fun, at the end of the class may do so. Texas Parks & Wildlife is requiring that all participants wear face covering an/or gloves during all hunter Ed and Bowhunter Ed classes conducted in July and August.  Please comply.
