Hunter Education / Outdoor Safety
AVFGA is looking forward to this years Hunter Education Course

AVFGA is pleased to announce that our Traditional Hunter Education course will be held on September 9, 10, and 11 2022 at the White Mountain Community College and our AVFGA Range. Registration for this course will open on July 1, 2022 starting at 8:00am. For more information about this course, click here.

You may take the online Hunter Education course and then attend and pass a field day. Students will learn most of the course content online at their own pace. Once students pass all the chapter quizzes, pass the final exam, and pay the $29.00 fee to the online vendor, they will be given a link to the calendar of available field days.

Field day attendees will learn safe firearms handling and nomenclature, map and compass skills, and will be asked to demonstrate their knowledge of safe hunting. Participants will be required to pass a written exam in addition to a practical field exam before being granted the Hunter Education certification.
The Hunter Education certification is emailed to students once the instructor inputs the course results. Students may also return to the registration site to see a history of the courses they took and print a copy of their certification. 
Please Note: Field days are available only for New Hampshire residents age 15 and older.

 Anyone unable to attend a field day for the 2022 fall hunting seasons should consider the apprentice hunting license. Individuals who purchase an apprentice license can hunt with a fully licensed hunter age 18 or older without taking hunter education first. The apprentice license is a one-time purchase opportunity.

Since 1962 (AVFGA'S inception of the Hunter-Education Program) a total of  4,161 students have successfully completed Hunter Education in Berlin.

In 1989 the Androscoggin Valley Fish & Game Association with the guidance of the NH Fish & Game Department, formed its own all volunteer "Hunter Education Team". From that point 2,002 students have been certified through the efforts and dedication of the AVF&GA "Hunter-Ed Team". As chief instructor I would like to thank each and every Instructor and all support staff who were involved with our September 2018 class. They are the reason for the program's continued success!

It is an Honor to be associated with such professional, knowledgeable, and giving "Special People" for without these devoted "Team Members" there simply would not be a Hunter Education Program in existence in the Berlin area. Be Safe...Get Certified!!!
