Default MISSOURI BOWHUNTER EDUCATION CLASSROOM COURSE

So how many people have taken this course? I registered for a class held at the St. Charles Police Dept. I heard it might be required for urban hunting if I ever take part in that.

Just curious what other's have done or think of the class.

Usually the best place to find out about taking a class is at a MDC shooting range. They host more classes than about anywhere else.

I instruct a class in Plattsburg in NWMO on a Saturday every year in August. Class sign up is not set up yet.

I attended and passed the course; going into it I thought it was going to be more "hands-on," when I felt it was more background on how archery has evolved over the years. There was a lot of talk on Pope & Young, and their archery mentor Ishi, talk on "conservation" vs "preservation"...etc. Not that any of that is bad, I just thought there was going to be more hands-on, holding bows, learning how to nock arrows, more of the mechanics of archery...etc.

In my group there were folks that aced the course that probably didn't know the difference between a nock or fletching, let alone know how to actually nock an arrow and draw the bow back.

I took the course b/c as you mentioned it was a requirement for urban archery. Lastly, I took the course a few years ago, curriculum could possibly be totally different today.

It is really going to depend on the instructors. The one I took did quite a bit of hands on in regards to using stands, judging distance, blood trailing, etc. As far as shooting the bows and that kind of instruction it would be awfully time consuming and labor intensive. I would go to an archery shop for that kind of information.

Cal, there will be a lot more classes scheduled closer to the season. Keep checking the link that golfnut posted.

The fake blood trail in the 8' tall prairie grass was the best part of our class. It was like hunting Africa with out the disposable tracker leading the way
The 3D target was deader than a hammer when we got to it
