    Default other states Certification???

    I have a bow hunter's certificate from N.Y. I know that Alaska recognizes other state's certificates. However, what must I do if I would like to hunt Moose or Brown bear in a "bow only" area? Can I just carry my NY certificate or do I need to convert it to an Alaskan certificate?
    Thank you,
    Mike

    Default You are good

    You are good as long as it is the NY Bow Hunting Certification. My card is from NY and I put that number on the draw hunting application and it is recognized. Funny, I am an instructor in AK but don't have a card from AK.

    Default Wording

    Probably worded that wrong. My archery certification card is from NY. My Inst. cards are from AK.

    As long as it was a IBEP course, then irts accepted. As Dave stated, if it was sactioned by the state of NY, you should be good to go.

    doesnt have to be IBEP NBEF or even put on by the state department as long as it is "recognized" by that state or sponsored I believe is the offical term.

    OK, the regulation does state IBEP or "equivalent" is required. Alaska offers the IBEP course to satisfy the requirement. When the State says "or equivilant" it usually means the course has to come close to the IBEP in what is taught and the requirements to be certified. As always, if there is any question, ask Fish and Game and/or the Wildlife Troopers.

    Default Problems

    I had a problem with a relative last fall. He had hunter Ed., but the archery was more or less an orientation part of the course. The archery has to be a separate course.

    He did the online, although not recognized at that time for practice. I ended up doing the shooting proficiency at my house with him and teaching the course on the 2 day drive to the hunt. He passed but missed 2 questions on AK regulations. Good enough.

    I went through this whole deal last year. If you have a card from any of the other 49 states it doesnt matter if it is IBEP or not. If it says bowhunting education then you are good.

    I grew up in Ulster County about an hour south of Albany, sure do miss the deer and turkey. The military took me away and I am now working on becoming a teacher.
