The Apprentice Hunting License is available again this year. This program allows people a chance to hunt under the guidance of an experienced hunter age 18 or older, without having to take a Hunter Education course first. Learn more about the program here.

The new license was a big hit in its first year (2012), with 1,666 Apprentice Licenses sold. Of these 427 were purchased by women.

“It was exciting to see the number of younger people who participated,” said Wildlife Programs Supervisor Kent Gustafson. The majority of apprentice licenses were sold to people age 16-34, a demographic that bodes well for the future of hunting in New Hampshire.
