Bowhunter Education Field Day OnlyGet directionsInstructor: Douglas Lambert E-mail: DHL-Archery@sbcglobal.net
The Online + Field Course is ideal for older youth and adult bow hunters who already have been shooting archery and/or bow hunting. For younger students, adults should assist them with the online course and accompany them during the field course.
The certification process consists of two parts:
- Online coursework: Complete the Online Bow Hunter Education Course.
- Pre-register for and attend a “Field Course” with a TPWD-certified bow hunter education instructor.
Part 1- Online Course
This Bow Hunter Education online course is provided by one independent, private vendor for a fee – a fee which is separate from the $15 fee paid to the instructor in Part 2 – the Field Day..
After completing the online homework of Part 1, print out the field day certificate (voucher) and bring it with you to the field course.
Part 2- Field Course
The Field Course includes: a presentation of ethical and responsible bow hunting, participation in a bow hunting skills trail, a bow shooting exercise/test, review of regulations and a final exam (score at least 75% to pass). The Field Course is completed in one day (min. 4 hours). You must pre-register for this course with the bow hunter education instructor to reserve a seat and find out further details, such as location and hours.
Schedule of Bow Hunter Education Field Courses
When you arrive at the Field Course site:
- Bring the “Field Day” Certificate
- 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 areas (e.g. Hagerman NWR) that require such certification in addition to the state’s hunter education requirement.
- Note: A bow hunter education certificate does not take the place of a hunter education certificate or state requirement.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Bowhunter Education Course
Sunday 6 June 2021 , Cinnamon Creek Ranch, Roanoke (North Fort Worth), TX
Texas Parks and Wildlife will be conducting a Bowhunter Education course at Cinnamon Creek Archery (Event Center pavilion), Sunday 6 June 2021. Address-13794 Old Denton Rd. Roanoke, TX 76262.
This is a field day only
course, participants will need to have completed the Texas online portion (www.NBEF.org
) or http://www.bowhunter-ed.com/texas/
, take the test, print and bring
the Field Day qualifier form to the course on Saturday.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will earn the International Bowhunter Education Program certification. This certification is required for some State requirements as well as some Federal lands in Texas.
The plan is to get started at 0830 sharp. It’s my expectation to complete the course by mid- afternoon. Depending on the number of participants, weather, etc, it may go slightly longer, I apologize in advance.
We will not release for lunch, bring a snack and drink if you desire.
For the Field Day class, we will not
be conducting live-fire. Dress appropriately as we’ll be outside for a while- hat, boots, insect spray, etc.
For all participants, I believe the online course cost is $30.00, the field day portion will be $15.00 and paid at the beginning of the course.
This being a Field Day only course, it’s better suited for a somewhat experienced bowhunter. The short timeframe usually dictates little or no one-on-one instruction and the online portion has no manner in which to ask questions or enter into discussion. Basically we will cover some important points, engage in a discussion covering rules/ethics and a little safety, participate in a mock blood-trailing, a shoot-don’t shoot/range estimation exercise, tree-stand demo’s, couple of short videos, and then a TPWD final test.
Let me know if anyone needs handicapped access, as well as if there will be any youth/children attending with you. Neither is a problem, in fact it’s encouraged, but we like to know in advance. Minimum age for certification is 12 years old.
