Bring a pencil or pen, a highliter, and $15 registration fee.  You can bring a sack lunch or money to eat at one of the local restaurants.  If you wish to go to the archery range after the class to either practice your shooting at 3D targets or to qualify for the Hagerman Bow Hunt, bring your bow and arrows to be used after the class.  There will be a separate fee for the archery range if you choose to go shoot.  That fee will be paid directly to the range.  Going to the range to shoot is optional and not required to receive your bowhunter certification.  It is, however, required in order to participate in the Hagerman hunt.
