    Default Archery "Certification"

    It appears that to hunt big game, with a bow, as long as it is an open season, you do not need the archery certification class. Am I right that that is only needed if you are hunting during an "Archery Only" season?

    That would mean that hunting black bear on the Kenai with a bow is ok, without the certification, right?

    Thanks.

    Yes unless it's archery only location or time.

    That is correct. Anyone is welcome to use archery equipment in a regular open season. The IBEP certification is only necessary for a "weapons restricted" hunt.

    Doesn't that change July 1st and bow hunting anywhere needs the cert?

    Based on the information here: http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/...+certification, that goes into effect July 1, 2016, so we still have some time.
