Do I have to take both the Bowhunter Education Course and Hunter Safety Education Course

If I am strictly bowhunting, do I have to take both the Bowhunter Education Course and Hunter Safety Education Course or just the Bowhunter education course.

Answer: 

To purchase an archery permit, all bowhunters must possess a valid hunting license and show proof they have completed an approved bowhunter education course or show evidence of having been licensed for an archery-only hunt in Idaho or another state, or complete an affidavit to that effect.
To buy a hunting license, all hunters must show proof that they have completed a hunter education course if they were born on or after January 1, 1975, unless they have held a hunting license from Idaho or another state.
