A new online bowhunter education course is designed to help Alabama bowhunters improve their skills and stay safe in the woods. Bowhunter Ed, which is an official course of the National Bowhunter Education Foundation, teaches safe in-the-field practices, bow shooting basics, different methods of bowhunting, and shot placement and recovery techniques. By completing this Bowhunter Ed course, students satisfy bowhunter certification for the state of Alabama, with no field day required.

“Bowhunting seasons in Alabama and many other states are already open,” said Marilyn Bentz, executive director of the National Bowhunter Education Foundation. “If Alabama residents are planning to hunt big game in certain areas or on special hunts where certification is required, you would be wise to take this course or a traditional course now.”
The Bowhunter Ed course is mobile friendly so students can take the course on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or other device. Bowhunter Ed features easy-to-understand information, instructional videos, plus detailed illustrations and animations to help students be successful, better prepared bowhunters.
