Troop 55/54 is hosting a Texas Hunters Ed course on the afternoon of October 15, 2023 at 1pm. A Texas Hunter Education Certificate is required for anyone who hunts game within the state, born on or after September 2nd, 1971, including out-of-state hunters. All individuals from 9 years of age and up are eligible for the course, and the certification lasts a lifetime. This is also a requirement for the BSA Shotgun Merit Badge.
What: Texas Hunter Education certification
Who: Anyone born after Sept. 2, 1971 must complete hunter education to legally hunt in Texas;
9 is the youngest age for certification;
Certification is lifetime and reciprocal in all of North American, including Canada, Mexico, and several other countries.
*if you are born before 1971 and are “exempt” in Texas, if you ever have the chance to go beyond Texas to hunt, this certification is required in addition to a valid hunting license. Every state has their own ‘born-after’ date where Hunter Education is required, and most all require non-residents to have the certification as well.
