• At some point over the next few days NC Hunt and Fish will be migrating to a new server. We are not changing our hosting provider, but we are changing machines within that provider. The reason is that an external vendor, cPanel, has increased the price of their software and we need to migrate to a different control panel. When the migration occurs, the site will be unavailable and it will remain unavailable until the DNS servers are populated with the new IP address. This could take a day, but usually happens overnight. Once the site goes down you should clear your cookies and cache in your browser so you no longer attempt to connect to an old instance. Instructions will be posted on the old server so people who are stuck there will know how to find the new server.

Has anybody ever taken the bowhunter class (Today's Bowhunter) that the NC WRC has as one of the advanced hunter education courses? I will be taking it this Saturday, April 6. Just curious how it was if you took it.

I took that course a few years back. I have bow hunted since about 1971 and I think there was nothing in the course that I did not know, BUT, I think it was done pretty well. I hope you enjoyed it and had a good time.

I took it a long time ago. It was a requirement to bow hunt in Colorado. As I recall, it covered everything the hunter safety coarse did, with emphasis on bow hunting. This was before crossbows were made legal for anyone.

How did it go?

To be honest, I was a bit disappointed because I already knew 90% of the material they covered. But I did learn a few new things that I didn't know and got to practice with my bow afterward and get some good form tips from one of the volunteers. And I learned that some states require an IBEP course for you to bowhunt in them, so now I am covered if I ever go out of state to bowhunt in those particular states. :D

Took the Course with my uncle in Guilford County, at the time I was a "Rookie BowHunter" and enjoyed the Class. Safety Issues were covered as well as Tree Stand Hunting, Arrow Placement, Deer Anatomy, Draw Weight vs Arrow Spine. I believe its a Good Idea for New Hunters. I still reference the Handbook occasionally.
