Before purchasing a Game-hunting License or Game-hunt and Fishing License, all hunters younger than 18 years of age must attend this education course. There are no minimum age requirements. However, students under 11 must be accompanied by an adult. You must pre-register for the class and go to www.wildlife.state.nm.us/education before the first class to complete a set of homework. Homework must be printed out and completed before the first day of class.
Students must complete BOTH sessions and pass both a written exam and a firearms proficiency evaluation to be issued a Hunter Education number which is required before a minor can obtain a hunting licence. Please refer to NMDGF at www.wildlife.state.nm.us/education for complete requirements, course content, and homework.
