NH Hunter Education Certificate Number Required

Recent legislation in many states now require A Hunter Education Certificate Number. Not yet in NH but the bottom line is, as they say in the laundry business, no ticket, no shirt. In this case without that number you or I cannot get a license  in states that require it.  For years I used old licenses to renew my licenses. I even instructed in my state of New Hampshire for a decade for both hunter education and bow hunter education. I needed to obtain copies of my original certifications so I called Fish and Game Hunter Education Coordinator Lisa Collins. I left a message and later in the day made contact. She found my Bow-hunter Cert. but needed to look in archives for my Hunter Education Certification. Without the hunter education number I cannot hunt with firearm in states that require it. Lisa tells me that she has no record of Hunter Education Certification therefore I must retake the course to get a number.

A word to the wise, if you don’t have a certificate number and you have been trained, then you must call NHFG and get a new copy ASAP.
