About the Program

Overview:

The main purpose of the combination field day course is to provide an alternative to the traditional combination course. This course is the same as the traditional combination course; however, the classroom portion is completed by either, online training or as a take home study format. Students will receive both hunter education certification and bow hunter education certification. The main purpose of the combination course is to provide a convenient option for students wanting both courses. 
In order to purchase a hunting license in Michigan, an individual born on or after January 1, 1960, is required to successfully complete an approved hunter education course. There are two different formats for successfully completing the combination field day course. Students must take either, the online course or the take home study, then complete the field day in order to earn both safety certificates. Students choosing the online course followed by the field day must present a copy of their certificates of completion (vouchers) of the online courses at the start of the field day. The online courses are fee based and can be taken at https://www.hunter-ed.com/michigan/ for hunter and https://www.bowhunter-ed.com/michigan/ for bow. The second format is take home study. Students register for the field day and pick up the student manuals, a minimum of one week prior to the field day. Take home study students must complete the chapter review questions and present them at the start of the field day. Michigan’s combination course is taught by a dedicated core of certified volunteer instructors and Michigan conservation officers.
