Course Description

Hunting is a traditional and exciting way to enjoy the outdoors while also filling the freezer with healthy, delicious game. The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife's Hunter Education Course is more than just a crossbow safety class. This course will provide a wealth of knowledge regarding equipment, proper hunting methods, responsibilities and general safety. You'll receive a course handbook and additional materials. Each course is taught by a trained, certified instructor according to statewide standards.

This course involves lectures and demonstrations by instructors. Topics covered include:

  • History & Modern Crossbows
  • Responsibility & Ethics
  • Accessories
  • Shooting & Handling
  • Special Concerns
  • Laws & Safety
  • Testing & Review

    You must attend the entire course and pass a final exam in order to receive your certificate of completion, a required component necessary for obtaining your crossbow hunting permit.

    To be eligible to purchase a crossbow hunting permit, any person 16 years of age and older must hold a valid license to hunt big game (either a big game hunting license or an archery license), and must submit proof of having successfully completely an archery hunting education course and this crossbow hunting course.
