I have hunted with a bow back in 1980.

Do I need to take a bow hunter course or how would I prove that I hunted with a bow?

Answer

The vendor that you purchase your archery validation from will have an archery affidavit that you can fill out and sign indicating that you have experience hunting with archery equipment.
