Prop. 133 sought to require International Bowhunter Education Program certification for all big game bow hunters, statewide. The original proposal was amended twice and finally voted into regulation as amended.
· Amendment #1: The regulation will go into effect on July 1, 2016, to allow bowhunters statewide to attend classes/testing and become certified.
· Amendment #2: Big-game hunters statewide must, while hunting big game, carry a card indicating proof of successful completion of a department-approved bow hunter education program. Also, after July 1, 2016, big-game bowhunters contacted in the field by a peace officer must provide proof of certification upon request.
