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:

  1. Online coursework: Complete the Online Bow Hunter Education Course.
  2. 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.
