Montana law requires anyone born after January 1, 1985 to take a hunting education course or qualify as a young apprentice hunter before purchasing a Montana hunting license. Hunter education courses are taught by certified volunteer instructors. They are free and open to anyone who will be old enough to hunt this fall.
