Kittery Trading Post is pleased to offer our Hunter Safety (Archery) Course free to the general public. By Maine state law, individuals must complete a hunter education course prior to buying a basic hunting (archery) license, or be able to show a previously issued license of the same type. If you would like to refresh your knowledge of safe and responsible hunting, then taking a hunter education course is a great idea.
