New Germany to Host Hunter Education Course

May 1, 3 and 5

Hunter Safety

New Germany will be hosting a three-day Maryland Hunter Education Course on May 1, 3 and 5. The class is for first-time hunters obtaining their hunter education certification. Students must attend all three sessions to be eligible for hunter certification. Any student under the age of 13 must have an adult (21 years of age or older) accompany them during all sessions. 

Students must register for the course in advance.

The course will include instruction in hunter responsibility, firearms and ammunition, firearm handling and safety, marksmanship and shooting fundamentals, principles of wildlife management, bowhunting, muzzleloader hunting, tree stand safety, safety and first aid, water safety, and federal and state legal requirements.

In order to pass the course, students must complete a 50-question multiple choice test with a grade of 80 percent, demonstrate to the instructor the ability to safely handle a firearm through practical exercises and participate in live firing. Students must also be recommended by the instructor to obtain certification by demonstrating responsibility and the maturity to be a safe, responsible and ethical hunter.

Those with questions are encouraged to email Justin Carrico

New Germany staff also manages Big Run, Casselman River Bridge and Dans Mountain state parks.
