Arizona Game and Fish Department rolls out hefty schedule of bonus point field test sessions in July

PHOENIX, AZ (STL.News) – The Arizona Game and Fish Department is offering a unique opportunity for adult hunters looking to complete the field test portion of the Arizona Hunter Education Program’s requirement to earn a bonus point.

A total of 19 field test sessions are being offered this month. To register for a field test session, visit

The field test is for adults 18 and older who have successfully completed the online course and have three years of hunting experience.  Once a passing score of 80 percent is obtained on the online course examination, a completion certificate may be printed and a field test scheduled.

All field tests are administered by certified department volunteer instructors.  Students rotate through practical application stations at their pace.  The stations include live-fire, matching, practical hunt and a written examination.  The average completion time is one hour.  There is no instruction provided during a field test.

A bonus point, by definition, is an accumulated credit that authorizes the department to issue a big game drawing applicant additional computer-generated random numbers during a draw.
