    Ok from the X bow thread it brought something to my attention. I am curious which states have bowhunter education and which states require it.

    I know that Alaska Requires bowhunter ed in order to hunt the primative weapons seasons.

    I know that California requires Hunter Ed to hunt period. But has no restrictions on Bowhunter Ed.

    Missouri you have to have hunters ed. if you where born after jan. 1969 I think that is right but there is nothing for bow hunter Ed. They kinda go into it a little but not really. You have to have hunter Ed. to be able to hunt during a gun season IE: To gain your turkey or Deer tags.

    Arkansas requires general hunters education if born after 1968.

    Kentucky requires hunters ed, but they have never asked for it when I buy my tags. Wish they would though.

    Kansas includes a Bowhunting Section in their Hunter's Education course.
