As a volunteer Minnesota Bow Hunter Education Program (MBEP) Instructor you can use your knowledge and experience to teach people about bow hunting techniques, equipment, bow hunting safety and hunter responsibility.
MN does not require Bow Hunter Education course certification. However, many states, provinces, or special designated Bow hunting areas (federal lands, urban and city owned lands) do require successful completion of a recognized Bow Hunter education course.
States and Provinces now requiring certification to Bow Hunt: Alaska, Connecticut, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Vermont. Canadian Provinces include New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Quebec.
MBEP Instructor training sessions
The Minnesota Bow Hunter Education Online Program Option covers bow hunting techniques, equipment, and bow hunting safety and hunter responsibility. The program requires associated field day experience. Students learn from a certified instructor the concepts deemed important by the International Bowhunter Education Program (IBEP).During the MBEP instructor training session, you will receive information on course policies and procedures, training aids, review instructor manual and course forms. The training session will be taught by a regional training officer using a lecture format along PowerPoint, hands on demonstrations, applicable course handouts, introduction of student and instructor manuals. This course is not replacing the existing MN Bow Hunter Ed classroom course.
